Buying Tips – Radios / Tuners

Older tuners tend to have mechanical based tuning mechanisms linked to the tuning dial, whereas newer tuners tend to have a digital tuning circuit. As such later tuners tend to be a safer buy second hand, whereas the former can suffer from mechanical failure that will prevent accurate tuning. Do check the FM range older tuners cover, some older models can’t tune high up the spectrum which will prevent you receiving some stations.
