    I've got a craving for big lights and a tuning dial on my kit rack, and have seen HFW's write up on this compared to some modern tuners. Will it show my Arcam T51 the door on Radio 3 broadcasts, what I listen to mainly on the radio, that and football! Or are there any other nice bits of kit to look out for. Offers of for sale things and Ebay links gratefully accepted. Come on boys don't let me down :)

    I'd found those! Was wondering if anyone knew of any other bits of 70's hi-fi porn that look great and sound better?

    I'm currently well on the way to getting it sorted I think. Sansui seems to be the answer. Mind you how much would he want for his Luxman?

    My old man had one of these to match the AU-317 amp he had at the time. Great amp and a great tuner too - the 417 may be better dunno - shouldn't thing you would go far wrong with either of them. Beautiful build quality too. Can't say exactly HOW wide they were, but I had the amp as a hand me down at college and I don't remember them being overly wide - fairly standard jap kit width really.

    It's looking like a Pioneer, the Sansui's are very rare unless you want a 217, but that ones dial doesn't light up
