Anyone listen to Music on a FM tuner anymore?

I’m not referring to streaming, I mean an actual FM turner. I haven’t had a turner for at least 15, probably more like 20 years. I had a high-end one that went bad years ago and even then I hadn’t really used it in years. Just wondering if anyone still uses one and why?

Added info: back in my college days there were lots of reasons, some great DJ’s in the New York City area and sometimes a live concert broadcasts that were great, but those times are long gone, as is most of my hair and my 32 inch waistline.....I’m not trying to judge anyone for still listening to music on a FM tuner, just asking for the reason to do so.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season.


I listen to the local classical music station through my main home system on a Denon Japanese tuner that's been worked over.  I prefer the sound of the tuner to the same signal streamed.  I listen to a variety of stations in the car.

I gave away my tuner last year.  Hadn’t used it in years, so it went to a good home where it could feel wanted.😁

Now the only FM I listen to is when I’m driving.

I listen frequently to my McIntosh MR-78. I enjoy having it on in the background. Some decent FM stations in southern Georgia. Also get my morning talk show and NPR in good reception. I know it is a lot of nostalgia but it is enjoyable. Certainly not comparing to vinyl or CD when listening but it feels good when it is on. 

Every day!


My Magnum Dynalab Etude gets a lot of use. 

Amazing sounding tuner. Had it since new. 


Oh yes indeed. Maybe not daily but quite often. A tuner from the XDR guy does the job quite nicely.
