Overview

Putting this T-9090 side by side with the much more expensive Magnum Dynalab FT-101 tuner, we can hear what was the rage all about on the T-9090 when it first appeared many years ago. This is simply an outstanding FM tuner in its own right. And at under $200 and many hundreds lesser than the FT-101, it is an absolute best buy in this price category. Pull strength was exceptional and the APR (Automatic Precision Reception) system developed by Onkyo, which helps select and tune in to the most optimal signal frequency ensured you get crystal clear radio reception. The stereo imaging was very good and vocals was holographic and precise. And that’s with an internal antenna. Had it been hooked up to an external antenna, the signal/sound will be top tier. Our other Denon TU tuners who are around this price range got smoked by the T-9090 easily. Below are some specs on this tuner;
