Yes this was free.
Yesterday i saw an ad for this Amcron Crown FM-1 tuner but the price was 0.01 and knowing how old it was but how good it is I contacted the seller for a price quote.
I found out from Steven at Audio Sensibility that he was giving it away for free!!
I got his address and made a mad dash for his place.
He greeted me at the door and handed this gorgeous piece to me and said Enjoy.
And holy smokes I'm doing just that.
It works perfectly and sounds better than anything in a tuner I've ever listened to.
The tuner has some type of electronic tuning system that is flawless. Touch a button and shazam ..there's the channel.
I have a Magnum Dynalab St-2 antenna outside my place mounted about 20 feet high.
Did I mention it has both seek and scan and presets too.
I'm still in shock as i write this but every word is true.
It is missing the rack handles but who cares..I mean seriously..I will do without them.
I've had digital tuners before but this one takes the cake.
It's got a modulation meter and signal strength.
It has variable and fixed output.
Big big shoutout to Steven at Audio Sensibility.YOU ROCK
Thank you for the wonderful gift.
Oh yeah..Steven answered the responses in the order in which they came to him.
It's just another reason I check ads even when they don't list a price.
Yaaay!!!

it should be good sounding, and built with quality like most crown equipemnent., enjoy that was a great free bee.
now how long do you think it is going to take before somebody bring out the old tuner shoot out list, to tell you that it is not on the super best 10 list... crap! enjoy and don t bother with that list.
