I am a bit surprised that there are no Creek Audio tuners mentioned. T40 was a good tuner, and later T43 was a better one (OK, I would say that, as I've designed the second one ) .

Cheers

Hello X-pro, It sounds as though you're still a pro. No Creeks because I've not had one, YET. I do use a Creek OBH-12 as the A/B switcher. Tape out as to bypass the level control. Hope to listen to a Creek tuner this year. jim...

Hello,

I am no longer working in audio design - so that is why the "X" .

However it would be interesting to get your opinion on T43 or T50 (which still uses my design of the tuner board, as far as I know). Apart of these 2, the same board but assembled in China and with lower grade components is used in Cambridge Audio T300 and T500 (I think) . Cambridge Audio bought the design from Creek... .

This design is interesting as it is completely different from anything else on the market (or made previously as a home tuner). The main board is build around top-end Philips chipset for car radios and uses completely synchronous (from a single crystal master clock) dual conversion receiver both for FM and AM.

Cheers

I have a T40, and it is an excellent tuner. Very sensitive and hifi sound - better than any CDP.

So I presume you have your very own high-quality FM transmitter inside your house that you are feeding with better-than-CD-quality material? Otherwise "better than any CDP" is just about physically impossible for quite a number of reasons, most of them relating to the inner workings of radio stations (notably processing) and radio propagation (notably multipath). Even if we're ignoring all content beyond 15-16 kHz for now. I've never seen any tuner spec'd at a stereo SNR of more than 90 dB anyway - and that's entirely academic once the slightest bit of multipath comes in.

Congrats on resurrecting a 10-year-old thread btw.
