Rarity

Lovely high-end FM only tuner from the Trio-Kenwood corporation (Trio L-01T in UK & Japan, Kenwood L-01T elsewhere). Ultra-rare! Superb performance - almost as good as my reference Trio KT-917. Very expensive when new in the early 80's. Constructed virtually entirely of non-magnetic materials (i.e. wood, plastic and aluminium). Does this tuner look classy or what!

Trio / Kenwood were surely the high-end tuner masters from the mid-1970's to the mid-1980's.
