If you are like the many hifi enthusiasts in recent years that have switched to listening radio via internet radio, then you are missing out what “REAL” radio sounds like – that is, via the airwaves and through an antenna. The Magnum Dynalab MD-90 is one of the greatest FM tuner available in the market now. Listening to radio through the MD-90 versus the internet radio is such a contrast. Through the MD-90, radio is more “analog”, almost like listening to vinyl. Internet radio is just too clean, too clinical. Its like its so correct that it sounds incorrect. If you want dead center sound, internet radio is perfect but if you want to enjoy listening to radio and feel its emotions like you do with vinyl, then “old school” is better. For the MD-90, it may be an airwave based tuner but the technology within it is impressively modern. Its “old school” updated for the 21st Century.
The MD-90 is a current model and sells new for $1,400. There are lots of positive reviews on it and does need a good antenna to shine in its full glory. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
