    Noticed your TX11a. I can second your comments about its sound quality. I have the TX11b. If you have not used the noise reduction on 'marginal' stereo signals please try that. I think this is one of the best noise reduction systems I have heard. Keeps much of the stereo separation but really reduces the noise. I also have the TX11-1 which is the stand alone noise reduction system that can be used with virtually any tuner. Does the same thing as TX11/a/b with same great results.

    In New York area, Friday night, listening to WQXR 105.9 fm - live from Carnegie Hall.
    Tuner is Meridian 504.
    Great programs on this station, always pleasure listening to - on internet as well. But I much prefer tuner sound.

    In the front parlor. The Scott 350 doing the receiving,The Fisher 400 doing the amplifying and the KEF-102s proving once again why I love the radio.

    WBHM, assorted jazz. Nondescript Pioneer BPC receiver on Polk minitower two-ways with sub that sounds great in the TV room. Also a cheap ass MCS tuner on an audiophile system into the other room. Also WBHM, and the MVS is a cheerful overachiever that works and sounds much better than could be reasonably expected. Found a Pioneer F9 tunah for $10 at a thrift this eve that may go there.

    Jazz on Ici Musique 90.9 Vancouver. All commentary is French so I do not know what they are talking about, but the music is fantastic on my Luxman T-12.

  15. Thanks DC for the compliment. The guy before me did the switch to match his newer mc gear. He was going to switch back to the original look to sell it but I really liked the updated look as well. Here's another image. I also have a nos dial glass waiting to go in.

    I think it wears the updates very well and I would be inclined, like you, to leave it this way instead of changing it back. :)
     
  19. Thank you. I won't be switching it back as I declined to buy the original bezel and endcaps for the unit. I couldn't see ever wanting that look for myself but I probably should have bought them anyhow for resale (they were a little pricey), ah well, at least I bought one of the last NOS dial glass' with it.

    it's nighttime somewhere...

    Catching Gary's Red on 91.3 WUNH http://wunh.org/polkaparty for those not within 25 miles. There aren't many folks doing radio like this anymore. He's worth your time.
