Do a full restoration on a cherry Dynaco FM-3 and you will be amazed. Then get a Creek remote attenuator and enjoy!
Actually, I got the basic unit. My point was to not spend much, and spending less was even more satisfying. As my other post said, I think this is a great buy for the money. The highs are sometimes a litte thin, and the bass is sometimes a little soft, but what a deal at less than $400.00. As I mainly use the tuner for background music, the Jolida is more than adequate. Glad you like your improved tuner. Not having had experience with the Jolida before, I opted to go with the basic unit and upgrade it if I thought it needed it later on. Don't think I'll bother at this point.
