    We've had threads counting our speakers, telling about our turntables, yada yada.
    So, now, how about your tuners? How many do you have?
    My favs are the two Onkyo T-9.
    Others include:
    Yamaha T-80 (two, excellent)
    Onkyo T-4090 (sweet)
    Technics ST-8080 (excellent)
    Denon TU-600 (nice, but not enough time with it yet)
    Yamaha CT-800 (haven't got 'round to listening to it)
    Audica ST-3120B (a mystery, but very good)

    That's 9 tuners, oh there is the old NAD 4020, but it's in a box 'cause it 'wanders' but it was a sweetie.

    Not beig a fan of FM radio quality I currently have only one tuner. It's a tiny Akai I paid $10 for. However I'm not averse to being converted into a tuner fan, so if somebody wants to sell me a very nice tuner for a very nice price I'm game. :D

    I like Chicken of the Sea, but when it's on sale, 3 Diamonds is good, too.

    Kenwood KT-8007
    (using it at work, with 1040 Marantz amp)
    (best of the Kenwoods, or Pioneers, or Sansui's I've had)

    Recently sold a couple of Marantz tuners, a Kenwood tuner, a Technics tuner, a Sony, and a Pioneer, so that's it for now!

    Does a tuner in a console count? I have one of those.

    Need to sell some more I guess! ;)

    I believe that I am fairly reasonable on this count (at least next to the 44 receivers I have collected!):

    two Akai AT-2400
    Optonica ST-3636
    Pioneer TX-1000
    Harmon Kardon 719
    Nikko NT-850
    Sansui digital something or another

    ...and I still burn over the thief that stole my Technics ST-9030 twelve years ago!!!

    I have a few, but the only one I ever listen to is the Pie In Ear TX-9500 on my desk at the squadron. I don't have a special love for it, it's a good tuner and brings in tough to get stations. Plus, it fits with the SA-9500 underneath it.

    Carver TX-11a
    KLH Model 18
    Onkyo T-4038
    Nikko NT-790
    Sansui T-1110
    Akai AT-M5 (Stephie's bedroom with Dynaco SCA-80Q)
    Aurex FM-01 (the upper end of the scale stops at 88MHz)

    I think I have more tuners. I'm fairly certain I don't know where they are.

    not too many

    Tuners I remember that I have:

    (2) EICO HFT-90
    Yamaha CT-610II
    Yamaha T-500
    Radio Craftsmen CT-800
    Sansui TU-717
    Sherwood S-3000 (mono)

    When I use a tuner (very rare), I listen to the Shewood.

    'nuff said.

    Only one, an Onkyo T-4090. Paid $40 for it. As you said Pete... it's sweet.

    The FM range on that tuner is only 76 - 90 MHZ which means that you won't be able to tune in most radio stations since in Australia and the US we both use a scale of about 88 - 108 MHZ. The am section would work fine however.
