PURIST VINTAGE TUBE TUNERS
Pierre and his vintage tube buddy had a marathon, three-month shoot-off with 1960’s FM tuners. As expected, the legendary Marantz 10B was king of the heap, with warm, detailed, involving sound way beyond any solid-state tuner. Very unexpectedly, two little-known ’60s Scott tuners—precisely aligned and then modded—sounded so good we couldn’t tell them from the
Marantz. If all you’ve ever heard is solid state FM, a world-class tube tuner is an ear-opening
experience. Testing their second prototype, Pierre happened to tune in a live symphony concert. After a few minutes of listening, it dawned on him: through the Scott, he was hearing BETTER-THAN-CD sound from
this live broadcast! Head-to-head, our little Scott’s sound quality has whipped new $4000 Magnum Dynalabs, as well as every legendary solid state tuner.
