Beautiful circa-1988 Pioneer Elite tuner in excellent condition. The F-91 is a very upscale-looking with gold accents, orange display, and polished-rosewood look side panels.

Pioneer describes it as follows:

"Elite Reference Digital Synthesizer Super Tuner: We've pushed the level of FM sound quality to record highs with the addition of two Pioneer exclusives to the F-91. The first is the ARTS (Active Real-Time Tracing System) included in the IF section of the tuner. With some tuners, especially expensive ones, you have the choice of using a narrow or wide IF bandwidth. The first lets you avoid interference, but you have to settle for an increase in distortion. The second provides lower distortion and better sound, but interference may get in the way. Pioneer ARTS - it's simply the best of both worlds: its IF filter actively follows the desired signal while rejecting interference. Now you can enjoy both the low distortion of a wide bandpass and the high selectivity of a narrow bandpass. Sensitivity is much improved, too. The second Pioneer feature is the Digital Direct Decoder Type III. It takes the output from the ARTS IF circuitry and converts it into digital form before directly turning it into stereo analog signals. Thanks to pure digital operation, our DDD Type III is less prone to signal degradation. Moreover, in the Type III, we've simplified the circuitry using a new PLL detector, which has reduced noise even much further. Improvements extend to other circuits of the tuner as well. The front end, for instance, features an ID MOSFET to improve reception. Indeed, the front end is as highly sensitive and selective as an elaborate 4-ganged tuning capacitor. The F-91, like Pioneer amps and CD players, is designed based on our anti-vibration concept to damp harmful resonance and vibration for improved sound. We've turned circuits into modules and filled them with epoxy resin. And we've added honeycomb ribs to the chassis and used large insulators to shut out external vibration."

The Tuner Information Center (the web's go-to site for tuners) likes this tuner very much and states:

" The F-91 was part of Pioneer's "Elite" series. It's quite sensitive and has excellent sound, with particularly superb bass” … “an interesting unit. It adjusts the IF bandwidth and tuning frequency automatically to match the need of the signal, called ARTS for Active Real-time Tracing System” … "pick the F-91 for its sound quality unless we absolutely needed the superior sensitivity and selectivity of the McIntosh MR 78” … “The F-91 also was significantly better sounding and more sensitive than the Kenwood KT-815, particularly in the public radio range, and was much more sensitive and much quieter on weak signals than the Magnum Dynalab tuner they tested.”

On-line information:

Condition: Fully tested and in excellent condition. All lights, controls, and signal strength indicator working. Sensitive and selective reception with low noise. The faceplate and case are in great condition
