    Can anyone suggest a good sounding FM Tuner, I have read that the Denon TU-260LII is good, any opinions?

    Yes, my brother had one, seemed a good budget tuner. If you have the dosh Naim do the 01 which is nice.

    Make sure you are in an area with decent reception and get a dedicated radio aerial.

    Otherwise get a nice DAB tuner, brilliant even the little mono Pure radio is amazing, I fancy on myself for 99 quid even looks pretty.

    At the price of Denon it will take some beating. You really have to go to £300 / 400 to get something much better. What about a secondhand Creek T series tuner. That would similar money and better?

    I like this tuner, also try Sony ES tuners such as STS730ES, often turn up on e-bay, Hitachi FT5500 Mk11 good too.
    My ears diss DAB tuners thus far, tried Sky Digital radio maybe?

    Those Hitachi tuners take a lot of beating, I have a mate who is a used HI Fi dealer and he had a budget Hitachi tuner in, which he was selling for 30 quid, fantastic reception, wiped the floor with the Quad using a makeshift aerial.
