Another Yamaha statement - perhaps not "the best FM tuner ever made" - but is there such a thing ?

One of the best FM tuners at any rate AND one of the most well designed - same as a Sony ST-A7B.

Available mainly in silver, black being added at the end of the production run - silver looks better but then black on this unit looks better, too.

You'll find schematics aplenty below plus a compleat review at the FM tuner info website, of course.










Original japanese catalog finally at hand ! It shows the inside, with and without the shields ! Yes ! Stay tuned !
