    A friend is after a tuner. He has up to £70 to spend

    Any suggestions and what about DAB?

    Cheers

    The Denon is a great tuner and they also come up quite often on ebay for about £40-50. Has he also considered a freeview box which carries the main BBC stations and obviously is also great for getting extra free to view TV channels?

    Can someone answer me a simple question about the Denon TU-260 Mk II, which is :-

    Is it possible to manually press a button to switch the FM tuner back to mono, if for whatever reason a stereo station is a bit dodgy ? If so, what button do you press ?
