With its continued excellence in sound reproduction, Yamaha has once again created a versatile AM/FM stereo tuner for the music lover in you - the T-S500. All 40 stations can be accessed with two turns of the rotary encoder knob, after which it stops. Favorite stations can be set at either end for greater convenience.

In a nutshell, this is a user-friendly tuner that provides convenient tuning functions and a high visibility, two-line display.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from T-S500 AM/FM tuner is a solid performer The Yamaha T-S500 is a modern AM-FM tuner. For the money, it provides very high quality audio. There delivers drift free, quiet stereo with excellent separation of channels. It is reasonably sensitive with good selectivity. I am in a suburban location and required an additional antenna for optimum reception. I am not keen on the new 'modern' type of tuning. There is no tuning knob which I feel is a major missing feature which makes the tuner lose a star. It matches the Yamaha amplifiers and make for a very handsome set.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Voir ma lecture en franais I'm sorry i speak french only. Je compare ce Tuner avec deux que j'ai dj possd. Un Luxman T-353L et aussi un Linn Pkin. Mon meilleur est le Luxman pour la beaut des timbres, sa douceur d'coute sans aucune fatigue auditive. Je lui reconnait une faiblesse dans le grave qui tait mou. Le LInn lui avait un grave dynamique digne d'un lecteur CD. Cependant je ne lui ai pas reconnu une beaut de timbre. Bref un vin cors qui donne de l'effet toutefois o est sa saveur. Donc insatisfait. Maintenant j'ai un Yamaha TS-500 . Je ne peux au prix pay lui faire un reproche. J'ai cout come together des Beatles que je connais et entendu des notes surprenantes et justes. Surpris que je suis. L'antenne FM pourrait tre de meilleur qualit j'imagine. En somme mon valuation svre je le sais. Je ne peux pas le comparer en simultan au Luxman dont je retient sa beaut de timbres. Le Yamaha lui n'a pas un rgistre de grave mou, il est plus intressant accepter. Ma conclusion ne pas payer pour un Linn Pkin qui est une erreur grave. Garder votre Luxman T-353 L puis le Yamaha TS-500 est fortement acceptable pour la qualit que je lui reconnais. Excellent achat 267.00$ US. Au Canada 473.00$. J'espre que vous comprenez mon commentaire objectif et impartial selon L'exprience effectue. Merci de votre lecture.
