The SA-5ES has been widely praised, by users.
This tuner has lots of features and functions, indicating it is meant to pull in stations in tough environment. Sadly, the functions behind the jog-menu dial are awkward to use. Also, the frequency display is almost uselessly small-sized.
The tuner is quite sensitive [not very sensitive], the front-end is rather solid build yet does not meet the best of tuners when struggling in a strong signal field. What bothers me perhaps the most, is the audio quality. Well alright, FM tuners generally are not of the ultimate hifi gear. Still, the SA5ES flat sound quality to the high tones, cannot be excused.
