Wow the TU-9900 is a great tuner. Looks awesome too.

The MR 87 has piqued my interest as well. Vintage tuners can get expensive to maintain - at least thatís been my experience. So the MR 87 is a potential winner in my book.

We have two homes - one in Colorado where we are totally surrounded by mountains and all the FM is local. The MR 77 lives there and does yeoman work to this day. Sounds great too.

Our Wisconsin home is 80 miles from the Twin Cities and the DX capability of the MR-80 with rooftop yagi really shines here. Plus MPR and WPR stations have excellent fidelity.

The MR 87 could be a tuner for the ages. I donít really want another analog tuner since DSP has come so far in solving HD radio and adjacent channel issues.
