Anyone into FM radio

Recommended Posts

I know we are into digital radios and etc but how many of you are still listening to your analogue FM tuners?

BTW, what is the official specs on Australian frequency range for reception and de-emphasis?

47 Labs has launched a new FM tuner and I need to tell them the information for local reception.

Jack,

According to my records, frequency range for FM in Australia is 87.6 to 108.0 MHz. De-emphasis is 50 us.

You should check with ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority) who maintain the spectrum in Australia.

cheers

I listen to FM a lot - 3RRR is really my main source of new music.

I must be a RRR tragic, when I'm up at our country house I stream it over the net!

I hadn't been much into FM before recently but now starting to listen to JJJ, mainly "soundlab" at about 11:00pm sunday night and "Roots and all" at 10:00 pm thursday. I just use an Sony portable radio and headphones. I find myself wanting to use my tuner but find it all too difficult to plug it in just for those few times.

ABC Classic FM gets a lot of play at my place, mostly in the 5PM to 8PM time slot.

Hi Jack,

I would like a good FM tuner but at this stage I have my eye on a vintage unit from Sansui (the TU-X1) but they don't come along at anything resembling a reasonable price all that often.

A prerequisite is crystal clear reception of both ABC Classic FM (92.9) and 2MBS FM (102.5) here in "metropolitan" Sydney. The live broadcasts are the main attraction for me.

Digital radio does not interest me if they are going to compress the hell out of it.

Good luck with the new 47Labs tuner. BTW, I have been meaning to ask you if ever stock the 47Labs Miyabi Alnico/Standard MC cartridge?

Hi Aaron,

At the moment, 47 Labs is fairly good with delivery leadtime. I am not keeping any stock except those I use for demo. Happy to ask about the leadtime if you are interested.

I do have a brand new Kondo IOM! :love

Well I assume you both have signed up for another year, yes, I wake up to the Break-Fasters.

I'm actually using my Sansui 771 as a tuner at the moment, bit of a waste, but I have the tape out on it going to my JVC amp and it all sounds pretty good. RRR comes in nice and clear.

Funny you should ask, Grasshopper :love Some months ago I purchased an old analogue AM/FM tuner for a very good price. I rearranged my hi fi and dusted off my old Pioneer A400 amplifier (in perfect working order). The tuner I have is this:

TU-417.jpg

A Sansui TU-417. How does it sound? To my ears wonderful. I am enjoying listening to the 'wireless' very much.

cheers
