    I normally don't listen to FM, but I recently got a Magnavox CR-192 FM tuner to go with my Magnavox CR-198C console.

    Finished up the alignment today and feeding it through an Ampex 520 MPX decoder it sounds very good through my McIntosh C-24 preamp, Lagfayette LA-375 amp and KLH 22A speakers.

    Not really listening to one station. Just scanning the dial to see how it performs.

    My usual evening listening:
    Dinner Jazz snip (1).jpg

    Playing through either of these:

    or this:

    When I A/B them I can't tell much difference. They have similar control logics and specifications so maybe they have a lot of hardware in common.

    That is a good station. I listen to it on the internet occasionally. Quite a few good jazz stations out there in cyberspace. It's not the same as listening in analog, but how are you going to do that with a station halfway across the country, unless it's a syndicated show?

    listened to Sunday night's airing recorded on my poor man's reel to reel. This airs on KCUR 89.3 on Sundays at 8 pm
    4 hrs of New Age, Ambient, Electronica and all those other fringe genres of music. Been on the air for 20+ years. The tuner used was my almost 40 yr old Pioneer TX-8500II.

    WFMT in Chicago. They're playing some "churchy" stuff.

    HK 330B receiver with Parsec antenna (a recent thrift find). The Parsec really does a great job of pulling in the stations.
