Can someone please advise me on which mini system has the best tuner, or would I be better off buying a separate tuner?
I’m looking to buy a better mini system, but it needs to have a good radio, because I live in an area with pretty poor reception. I listen to the radio more than I do CD’s but the CD player still needs to be pretty decent.
The radio on my old midi system (as it was called back in the late 80’s) was brilliant, I didn’t even need to use the wire aerial to get all major radio stations in FM stereo. For this current one, I’ve had to buy an internal aerial with built in signal booster just to get a few stations in FM (not stereo). Even with that, reception isn’t always good. I used to think all tuners were the same, clearly not. I’m keen not to make the same mistake again.
I’ll be listening to FM, DAB reception here is so bad it’s not really worth considering. I also don’t want to go to the expense of an external aerial. I have looked at systems with internet radios too, I like the idea, but none have impressed me. I would prefer a mini system due to lack of space. My budget is around £500, but that includes speakers. I might stretch the budget further for the right system.
I would really appreciate any advice you can give.
