From a Stereophile review written by Larry Greenhill in the October 2001 issue:

"The Fanfare FT-1A FM tuner is a winner. It yielded even better ergonomic operation than the Fanfare FT-1, with quicker tuning and a front-end better able to handle strong urban RF and noise. The combination of improved RF performance with only a $200 increase in price makes the FT-1A an outstanding value in audiophile-grade FM stereo tuners. Best of all, the FT-1A gave up none of the FT-1's strengths, including excellent sensitivity, good quieting, and thoroughly musical sound. And it handled multipath as gracefully as did the Day-Sequerra FM Reference."

Our Testing Process for Tuners at SkyFi:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and tubes are inspected for signs of stress overheating or cracking.

Then the tuner is thoroughly tested in our lab utilizing our professional Sencore SG80 FM Generator, which allows us to generate a reference FM signal of any frequency and amplitude, and then measure the resulting tuner output on our Sencore PR81 or oscilloscope.  This unit passed with flying colors and produced a natural and warm sounding output.
