The FM tuner was not examplary, it was just for receiving the local stations. Yet the AM tuner section was beautiful: it was sheer joy, listening to clear channel AM stations. The Beomaster 901 behaved like a tube//valve radio, as for signal fading, and the AM tuner was rather sensitive, too.
The amplifier, then. The bass reproduction was enjoyably punchy, whenas the high tones sounded even uncomfortably metallic. This model was not hifi gear. The controls looked good, yet were not nice to use [I even remember having a cut in my finger, by a B&O 901 switch].
