First off, sorry for the lousy photo quality. This SAE T101 is part of a friend's collection and I took these as well as a few other pics for HiFiCollector.com with my cell phone camera. I'll bring my regular camera on my next visit.
My friend traded a pair of Advent Loudspeakers for this tuner a few years ago, and I'm about to do the same thing to acquire it. I'm not thrilled with my 33-year-old Pioneer SX-1050's tuner section as there's quite a bit of static when I move the dial and it's having trouble locking on to stations. One day I'll have it professionally serviced, but in the meantime, I'll use this SAE T101 as an outboard tuner for it.
According to my friend, it locks on to stations and sounds great - we'll see. I'm taking his word on good faith as I didn't feel like 'calling him' on his claim prior to our trade. It works both ways - he didn't ask to listen to the speakers I'm trading either. . .hopefully we'll do business again in the future.
How does it sound? - Stay tuned (ouch).
