More from McIntosh:

The Mclntosh MR 71 is a precision engineered, highly sensitive FM Multiplex Tuner. The research staff of Mclntosh Laboratory has developed five new tuner circuit improvements for the MR 71.

1. Automatic stereo-mono switching that is "clickless" and completely electronic. (Patent applied for.)
2. Multipath indicator to eliminate multipath reception by showing when your antenna is rotated to the correct position for minimum multipath distortion.
3. Double tuned input circuits before the first R.F. amplifier to reduce spurious re- sponses.
4. New D'Arsonval movement meters of increased sensitivity which do not need zero setting adjustments.
5. A new computer designed filter to reduce noise from stations broadcasting subcarrier auxiliary music services. No other tuner uses such a filter.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Tuners:

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.
