            Onkyo  T-4310R stereo AM / FM tuner - black
Features :
   High sensitivity, excellent sound quality tuner with green digits fluorescent display, DX mode, RDS capable

Tuner Center info :
A little lightweight black digital synthesizer tuner with surprisingly decent sound and excellent sensitivity and selectivity. The T-4310R has 4 ceramic filters, two of which have a narrow 150 kHz bandwidth that should satisfy all but hardcore FM DXers. It tunes in 0.025 MHz increments, allowing for detuning to escape interference from a strong adjacent channel station. As the R in its model number indicates, the T-4310R has RDS [Radio Data System] capability as well. FM stations that broadcast an encoded RDS signal give DXers the ability to identify them without having to wait for the call letters to be announced. The T-4310R was a recommended component in Stereophile despite (or perhaps partly due to) its modest price. See how one T-4310R sounded compared to 81 of the top tuners on our Shootouts page [EF]:

Shootout #62 (posted 12/18/03): Kenwood L-02T vs Onkyo T-4310R Winner: L-02T
This Onkyo has a polite, pleasant sound and images well. The politeness extends into the bass, so we lose that excitement of the big dog's bark. The 4310R is considered a DX tuner, and owners should be able to search the dials for long periods with no fatigue. This machine can search in 250 kHz steps, which was useful in off-tuning 88.7 to get away from adjacent channel splatter from 88.5. At 88.7, both tuners were able to hold a stereo signal in narrow. The Onkyo had more steady background hiss than the L-02T, but the Kenwood had occasional distortion which was noticed on voice and music. With the L-02T fine-tuned and the Onkyo set at 88.725 and both set to wide mode, the Onkyo held a slightly quieter signal. The noise in wide came from the interference from 88.5. I would guess the L-02T has a "wider" wide allowing the more prominent noise from 88.5. The Onkyo has a display to boast of its DX / Local switching. The tuner chose about 50/50 between the two automatic settings on twelve stations tested. The Onkyo wasn't as aggressive as the L-02T in closing to mono with both tuners set to auto mode, but on these weaker signals, there was more background hiss than on the L-02T when the L-02T was manually switched to stereo mode. In the final results, the Onkyo impressed as a DX machine and didn't offend as a music machine. Winner? The L-02T.
