What is there, for one to say. One of the best FM tuners ever built. FM tuners, with their limited up to 15 kHz freguency range rarely do. Still, some tuners do the magic. The T-85 is not just a FM tuner, it is a high quality CCIR-FM receiver while also challenging hifi standards.

Robust build, highly sensitive yet standing strong field. Versatile functions, amazing audio quality.

I have read opinions, the T-85 meets the CD sound, yet that is impossible for any FM tuner. To audiophile FM tuners, the T-85 is among best one can get. Makes me laugh at my Sony SA5ES. In audio quality, the T-85 beats the top-Onkyos I owned, too. Alright, I have the TX-530, TX-950 RS and so on, as well.
