    MY TAKE:


    A name long associated with superlative audiophile tuners, Magnum-Dynalab tuners have established a reputation world wide for their outstanding performance. Though not inexpensive, Magnum-Dynalab offers a range of FM tuners that will fit most budgets.
    If you are serious about FM, you’ll find complete satisfaction with the performance of a Magnum-Dynalab tuner.
    - Galen Carol


    The predecessor and backbone of the new MD 108T Triode Tube FM Tuner, the MD 108, is one of the most successful standalone FM tuners we have ever introduced. It has been a staple of the Magnum Dynalab collection for over 10 years and the first of our tuners to employ the distinctive and incredibly precise MAGIC EYE tube for tuning, and also the first of our products to utilize a separate audio stage within the unit.
     

    Our proprietary TRACCTM technology (Triode Reference Audio Control Center) was introduced first with the launch of the MD 109 FM Tuner, and this innovative design has resulted in our most impressive audio output ever. With our most inspiring audio section now available to the market, we felt it appropriate to apply this new technology to some of our classic Analog FM tuners. Introducing the MD 108T.
     

    In addition to the inclusion of the TRACCTM audio section we have also utilized an ultra-stable power supply, a new RF design with greater sensitivity, closer tolerances for the critical components, and a thicker printed circuit board with gold plated solder pads. Finally, a true differentially balanced circuit utilizes the full influence of the Triode tube design and insures that the balanced signals are perfectly matched - thus realizing the full benefit when used in a balanced system.

     

    Advanced RF Features -
     

    Building on the MD 108 fm tuner, the six stage front end is yet another improvement on a proven design. With three ultra-sensitive bandwidth settings and enhanced selectivity, you are ensured the best possible signal from either of the two analog antenna inputs. Plus, the MD 108T is equipped with two digital antenna inputs for future upgradeability. A muting circuit eliminates unwanted inter-station noise, and to provide a visual cue of the devices operation, the MD 108T fm tuner employs two accurately calibrated taut band analog meters to indicate multipath and signal strength. In unison with these meters, a unique dual MATRIX EYE tube for center tuning means there is little guess work in optimizing FM reception.

    This degree of customization in an FM tuner is only made possible by the fact that we at Magnum Dynalab continue to design and manufacture all of our RF front-ends in-house. Coupled with the impressive collection of critical components used throughout the device, it leads to an impressive list of primary highlights.

     

    FEATURES & BENEFITS:
     

    • Dual MATRIX EYE Tube Tuning: A unique and precise vacuum tube used to ensure that the RF front-end of the device is tuned perfectly for each RF frequency.
    • Three Ultra-Sensitive Bandwidth Settings: Wide, Narrow and Super-Narrow to ensure that the front-end of the tuner is able to collect the ideal amount of RF signal according to the specific listening conditions for each station.
    • Low Noise Dual gate MOSFETS: Transistors in the front-end of the tuner are specially selected to ensure that boosts in gain of the primary signal are not accompanied by a boost in adjacent noise, ensuring a strong signal without interference.
    • Custom "Potted" Torroidal Transformer: A secure platform from which to deliver perfect voltages to all critical components throughout the device via an overbuilt custom transformer.
    • Six Stage Tuning Front End: Six stages of RF filtering to ensure only the purest signal is delivered to the audio stage, all delivered via a custom designed and manufactured RF front end.
    • Custom Ultra-Linear Power Supply: A pure source of DC power throughout the device is of critical importance when supplying current. Our stable power source not only allows the tubes to perform at a consistently high level regardless of the dynamic changes in the music, but is also properly shielded and grounded to eliminate any transient signals.
    • Two Analog Antenna Inputs: Easy switching between two antennas, which can be placed in different locations throughout the home for maximum signal capture for specific stations.
    • Hand Matched Resonators: For variable bandwidth selections (Wide, Narrow and Super-Narrow), resonators have been hand matched to ensure the signal gain is consistent in all products we build according to our exacting specifications.
    • Auto Blend RF quieting circuit: In stereo mode, this unique circuit removes adjacent channel noise and stray frequencies from impacting the clarity of the primary signal by systematically adjusting the degree of channel separation.
