    Comments about Rolls RS80 - Quartz PLL Synthesized AM/FM Tuner:

    Replaced Dead Sangean in Audiophile Component System, Marked Sound Improvement. Contacted Co. to verify RDS feature. Excellent overall quality unit. LCD display is large enough but LED would be better. Programming is not simple, but OK. This is the third tuner on my system, a solid professional component with excellent sound clarity, amazing improvement in technology.

      Comments about Rolls RS80 - Quartz PLL Synthesized AM/FM Tuner:

      I use this tuner as a rack mounted receiver with my studio mixer for a background audio sound source. The receiver sounds excellent with FM. AM sound quality is good but not at the same level as FM. This receiver is well made with durable controls along with a remote that includes a standby switch. AM and FM antennas are included with the reciever. The FM antenna is particularly good. Very compact unit.

        Comments about Rolls RS80 - Quartz PLL Synthesized AM/FM Tuner:

        Rack mount tuner with lots of bells and whistles, large orange LCD display, XLR or RCA outputs, switchable voltage, presets, RDS display, remote control. Comes with an antenna. No country of origin, but remote says made in China. Looks like the ROLLS label was an afterthought and just silk screened, we assume, after import. We just wanted a reliable air monitor and it's fine for our remote studio.
