    I am the original owner of a Yamaha T-1 FM tuner, purchased in about 1980. The sensitivity and selectivity have declined over the years and it will no longer pull in my favorite low powered stations.

    I recently replaced it with a Pioneer F-99X based on favorable reviews on the FM tuner website. The Pioneer works great both for DXing and for quality music reproduction.

    I don't have any use for the Yamaha and would like to give it to someone who might appreciate it. Any collectors of tired old tuners out there?

    The tuner has quickly found a new home with one of our members. Thanks for your responses.

    I'm curious, why does sensitivity decline over time, what is the common cause? Do these have good reception when working properly? I ask because I have a T-1 but I don't even know if it works, I've never plugged it in.

    Many possible causes, but something that is worth a try can be found in the Tuners forum, the sticky thread about cleaning an analog tuner.
