John... funny you should ask. Just about two weeks ago, I purchased the fully modded 402 tuner from Underwood Audio ($1050 delivered). It's still not fully broken in yet, but I can say that the sound is noticeably better than my Magnum Dynalab DT-5 ($1000)... although the Magnum Dynalab does a noticeably better job of pulling in more FM stations than my modded Jolida. For my purposes, since I live in a metropolitan area (St. Louis suburb), reception is not too big of an issue (I use a Magnum Dynalab ST-2 whip antenna). I'm very pleased with the sound of this unit, the build quality is good, and I recommend it.
