re: 348B and the 312D tuner

Those of us who are FM tuner enthusiasts have come to appreciate the superior FM performance of the 348B which includes essentially the identical tuner that was also marketed as the model 312D. The early versions of these tuners used conventional transformers to couple the several IF stages of gain. The later versions of these models replaced the IF transformers with crystal filters. I have both versions of the 312D, and the early version is definitely superior in both sensitivity and selectivity. That this kind of performance was realized as early as 1968 is testament to the great engineering at H.H. Scott during their early days. I have not yet found another tuner of ANY vintage with a single IF bandwidth that can match the sensitivity and selectivity of one of these tuners. Even those newer ones with selectable IF bandwidth can barely match these Scott models. It's one of the best tuners for DX listening that you can find. It's my tuner of choice and I use it every day.
