tuner questions

a while ago i posted a question asking about independent tuners, since my nad integrated amp does not have one. someone recommended tivoli, but as i read about them i see they are mono, and also have their own amp and speaker. is there anything out there that is just a dedicatd am/fm stereo tuner? am i barking up the wrong tree? should i be looking for a stand-alone, or does it make sense to hook something into my existing system? i just want to listen to the game on AM and the local FM classical station. thanks for any advice. -dave
I am lucky enough to live where i can receive 3 different NPR stations with good sound quality, so a tuner is my 2nd favorite source next to vinyl. So much new music i probably would never had heard. I reccomend an analog tuner, they are inexpensive and sound better usually( the Proton 440 sounds excellent as do all the NAD digital tuners. I have an analog NAD 4030A(fm only) that is excellent, usually about $100. The Kenwood, Pioneer and Sansui 6000 series and up sound great and have strong signals. The pioneers have pretty good am too. An outdoor antenna is a must. FMDXantenna sells a 1/2 dipole antenna on Audiogon reasonably, i use his 1/4 wave ground plane and am very happy with it. All that new music out there for free, tuners rock.
Since you have a NAD Int. amp, I would suggest a matching NAD tuner. (Especially if it could be remote controlled!) There are so many good vintage tuners out there which can be bought for a song. A good tuner will make a big difference sound quality wise, no question. Good Luck.
I bought a tivoli radio clone made by Emerson. AM/FM stereo $.9.99 at Target. - get one if you can still find one-Laughable how good it sounds and reception is great too. a no brainer
OR- just hook in a tuner lots to choose from- Dyanco fm3 or fm5, scotts, Marantz etc.
