Typically warm and natural Technics sound. Pulls in signals well, especially in FM. Signal stability is good, with tweaking via freq shift - a useful feature. A wide/narrow shift to mono is available too. Still manages to sound better than my other Technics tuner (STG560l) which is a decade its junior.
