    The Yamaha TX-1000 is a great tuner. With that said, I just received an absolutely spotless, mint Carver TX-11a. It truly looks brand new all the way around! Using one of the C.Crane FM Reflect antennas, the Carver is pulling in stations stronger and clearer than even the Yamaha. It's sound stage is also wider and more 3 dimensional than the Yamaha. I'm extremely glad that I bought this tuner as I almost passed it up.

    Listening to WUSF FM 89.7 "All Night Jazz" - Carver TX-11a

    Stumbled onto a great jazz program tonight - KAZI 88.7 out of Austin, Tx.

    Tuner: the wonderful Kenwood KT-8007 (looks pretty much like the 8005 pictured above).

    WCNY-FM out of Syracuse, trying to stay awake and catch their broadcast of "Collectors Corner" at 10. I started with the little Sony tonight, but because you can't force mono on it unmodded, the signal was noisy. So away it went, and I've moved onto the MD F11, playing out to a Little Dot MKIII head amp and my AKG K702s. I know MDs aren't the end-all and be-all of tuners, but it works for me.

    They apparently also have an HD stream of adult contemporary.

    On a simple but great sounding one of these tuners.
    Their transmitter never went down the whole 2 weeks of snow storms!
