Had a Mitsubishi DA-F20, which finished #9 on that famous fm tuner shootout. Didn't seem terribly remarkable to me, but probably wasn't at its best as it seemed to drift.


I had a similar experience with one of the Pioneer tuners that was rated at number 20 & much higher than a Magnum Dynalab FT101a. I thought the MD had the edge in sound quality. I sold the Pioneer (eventually!) and had the FT101a upgraded. The FT101a after the upgrade had markedly better sound quality and clearly bested the Pioneer.

I find the fmtunerinfo.com is a nice site for those interested in tuners, but I take the shootouts with a grain of salt.

I have a Yamaha CT-600 with bass to die for in a tuner. Not expensive or overhyped...just a nice sounding tuner with great selectivity and separation. The Ct800 & 1010 are even better I am told. My Pioneer TX-9100 sounds too clinical but it has the cool good looks that makes up for the thin sound. Sony ST-51XX-55XX are reputed as excellent. I have the ST-5150 that sounds very good.

Ive owned a few, started out with the Technics ST 9030, then had a Sansui TU 517, a Sansui TU 9900 and finally my Dynalab MD 108T
I dont recall a huge difference between the first 2 tuners, the 9900 was definitely an upgrade, and the Dynalab is by far the superior component.
With that said, the rest of my system has grown in leaps and bounds since that first tuner so FWIW I can't really give a fair side by side comparison.
I do love my 108T though....
