The McIntosh MR89 tuner was designed and built to provide unrivalled FM/AM radio reception, which is why McIntosh worked diligently on a multitude of advancements to maximise radio listening. Adjustments were made to sensitivity, signal to noise ratio, harmonic distortion, channel selectivity, and stereo separation. This allowed the MR89’s pair of 60dB output meters to accurately portray Left and Right channel audio generated from the received program – depending on the station you tune in, you can see the quality stereo separation.
