Yamaha tuner

John Taylor, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought Yamaha because of their superior electronics. I am generally a Sony guy with most of my electronics sporting that logo. The Yamaha has everything I want except better a more sensitive FM detector and signal strength indicator. Out here in the woods, both of those things are sorely needed.

T-S500 AM - FM Tuner

mojo man, Crutchfield
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I have no problems with this tuner. It is simple, but that just means I do not have to be a rocker scientist to use it. I thought it was a little pricey. My wife said but the dad gum thing and we did and I am very happy that we did. There are some really good AM stations here that I like to listen too, and this tuner picks them up and they sound very good. I give this tuner all the pros and no cons. The FM reception in this city is excellent.

Good basic package but disappointing sonic performance

Boston, Crutchfield
23 December 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this tuner. It's simple, had good sensitivity/selectivity, intuitive UI, etc. But the sound quality was way sub-par. It had a thin sound overall that lacks any sense of depth or refinement. I wasn't expecting much at this price range, but it's almost as if engineers at Yamaha forgot how to make a decent tuner. I ended up returning it.
  • Pros: Good sensitivity - able to pull in weak stations in Stereo better than most tuners I've tried, Good UI, Elegant styling
  • Cons: Disappointing sonic performance

Analog is the way to go

Emmanuel Onuma, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: This tuner is for audiophile purists who believe in the rule of separates. That is amp is separate, Preamp is separate and tuner is separate. Clean simple design, LED display, channel presets and rich analog sound. Definitely not internet radio. My one knock on it is that it has no remote control, but if you're gonna go old school like me you might as well get your butt off the couch once in a while to change channel that's how they did it back in the day.
