You know that nice Sony tuner that everybody bought for $80.... well, a used one just sold on eBay for us$207 (plus $8.50 shipping).
Sony has not been doing well in recent years. Can they be THAT stupid to terminate a model that people will pay 3X the price for when used?
I can't believe it.
Yes, model had some shortcomings. But for signals less than full strength, I never had better sound, right down to barely any signal power at all. And getting HD is a plus too.
Guess I'll have to schlep the tuner to Florida if I want to get the good music that NPR broadcasts on a secondary HD channel near our snowbird condo - can't pick it up with regular FM-stereo reception.
