The Yamaha T-2 FM tuner was quite the masterpiece when it came out in the Eighties. The “industrial” design look was quite modernistic in its day and was clearly pitched against some of the top notch tuners at the time. The sound quality of the T-2 for a FM tuner is first rate. The only hang back is how good of an antenna you have it connected to. We had it hooked up to an outdoor Terk antenna and the radio stations that came through was as clean as a whistle. Voices was distinct and very natural sounding. Yamaha paid a lot of attention on the circuitry inside and for the hardcore radio enthusiasts, Yamaha made the T-2 such that it can be connected directly to an amp without the need of going through a preamp or an integrated where there will be additional circuits in the way of the signal flow. All you need to do is hook up a pair of interconnects into its variable output and adjust the volume via a cleverly hidden rotary knob under the front edge of the faceplate. In our opinion, this gives the Magnum Dynalab Etude tuner a good run for its money.
Cosmetically it is in pretty good shape. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We do not have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
