Magnum Dynalab MD 90T
The Hi-Fi Choice Awards - 2006
In the category of Best Radio Tuner over £500, Magnum Dynalab took home the Gold Award for the MD-90T
Digital radio has a lot going for it: variety, ease of use ... but on pure sound quality grounds, you still can't beat a good FM tuner and a suitable rooftop aerial. If you're serious about your radio, the all-analogue tuners from Canadian FM radio specialist Magnum Dynalab are in a different league. The MD-90T is the entry-level model and it sounds breathtaking -- only MD's more upmarket tuners deliver more. [HiFi Choice]
Developed to co-exist with the MD 90, the MD 90T is also a successor to the FT101A, one of the most sensitive, selective and sonically accurate FM tuners of our time. The MD 90T continues the tradition by re-defining state-of-the-art in analog FM tuner design. As did the FT-101A, the MD-90T combines the very latest in discrete, analog technology. In addition to its highly renowned MOSFET front end, which provides 3 stages of very careful and precise RF amplification, we have added the Triode audio section, which includes a Philips military grade 6922 tube in the amplification stage. This addition provides audio realism and the bigger sound stage characteristics heard only through the tube experience.
In addition to the features offered by the FT 101A, the MD-90T now offers even greater selectivity in order to deal with urban signal congestion. The in-house manufactured 3-stage RF front end is sure to extract the most intricate signals from amongst the milieu of FM congestion that abounds in today's urban markets. Additional support is given through our custom Auto Blend RF Circuit, which constantly monitors and varies your stereo separation insuring optimal "stereo quieting" during your listening sessions.
The MD-90T now incorporates all functions in a totally redesigned motherboard. This integration has provided the necessary design efficiencies to allow consistently higher levels of selectivity to be maintained. Along with added selectivity, the MD-90 has a redesigned power supply circuit that maintains the tuner circuitry at standby at all times when the tuner is connected to a live AC source. The MD-90T can also house the Precision Analog Remote System inside the chassis, allowing for precise analog tuning from well beyond a pragmatic range.
