My favorite current tuners are anything in the Magnum Dynalab line and the Myryad MT-100 (I just found one on eBay for $450). Jolida makes a new tube tuner that also looks very nice; but I haven't heard it.

Budrew, The Magnum Dynalab's FT-101 Etude was an excellent tuner. I don't know what you are considering "mid priced", but there is a gem from about 10 years back that nobody has mentioned yet, the NAD tuners. The well respected Larry Schotz had done all of the original circuit design in the earlier models for NAD and they were absolutely outstanding sounding.
Sensitivity and selectivity rivaled some of the best in the industry and still do to this day. The 4130 and 4155 tuners were awesome. There are a few on ebay for about $100.00. These tuners were originally about $450.00. There is actually one offered by a seller in Mass. for $10.00 opening bid. Yes, you read it correctly, $10.00. There is 1 day 22 hours left to bid.
I don't think you can buy a Tivoli for $10.00. Would you consider that mid priced?
