    Default Anyone have some good AM/FM receivers?

    I've been putting this off for some time now.....but I think this would be on the cheap side compared to all other things I've previously bought.
    So I guess im looking for something that gets good reception.

    Randy, I hate to say this. I really do, but FM/AM is an outdated product. You can get the same quality [sometimes much better] by going online and adding it from your computer or rig. It's nothing audiophile, mind you [Neither is FM/AM] but the worldwide stations sure as hell beat the local stations that come and go with the weather and other factors I won't get into right now.

    I can't believe I just said that.

    92.3 out of Greensboro, NC is my favorite for classic rock. Here's a link....

    Click onto whichever works for you. Best thing is? No antenna or reception issues....just the station. I hope this helps....
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Nothing for sale, but in terms of 'affordable' vintage receivers of fine quality and performance (and FWIW), I am a sucker for Yamaha:



    (that's a CR-2020, which did get some use in the living room for a while some years back, mostly with a pair of Allison Ones)

    That said, I would echo the previous post, sort of, and suggest at least considering an integrated amplifier. A Yamaha CA-800, CA-1000, CA-1010, or CA-2010 would be just dandy from my admittedly phenomenally biased perpsective.

    EDIT: oops, you meant tuners! nevermind...
