  • FM tuner cards

    Hi all

    Has anyone here ever used an FM tuner card? What have been your experiences with it? Do they have good sound quality?

    And the big question...has an am/fm tuner card ever been made?

    Thanks

      I have an old Reveal FM card that I picked up for $3. A little more static than a normal head system, but for the money, I'm happy with it. It's actually the same (or similar) as the one in the link that Spud42 gave.

      If I want to listen to AM stations, I just plug a walkman into my equalizer. (More info on my site) I've wanted an AM/FM tuner card too. Anybody seen one?

        Look in the other FM tuner card post, there is a link to a site which has a plugin for Winamp to control this sound card.

          the other option is to go for a card caled "winradio" . this is a scanner that goes from 500k to 1.3 gig. will do am,fm narrow , fm wide. one model even does ssb.
          so you could listen to just about anything...

            $350 is a bit pricy for something that will probably melt in my car. I want to buy one for my main PC though. I'd probably have to go through a UK dealer because I want the export version with the cellular frequencies. Why are these illegal here in the US when I can buy police scanners at Radio Shack that will pick up the same cell phone frequencies?

                For all the trouble that you go to, like, getting an FM card, or plugging in your walkman so you can get AM, why don't you just get a head deck with AUX input.. it'll cost you $230.. you'll have in dash CD, Radio, and you can flick to your mp3 system very quickly..

                  Inmytree: Look at this picture and it should answer your question:

                    I just found this Cadet AM/FM tuner card... http://www.adstech.com/products/cadet.html

                    $US 32.90 ...looks promisingly affordable and hey... it's got good old AM

                    Continuing the quest to avoid buying a new head unit..

                      If only there was a plugin to output the station to a LCD (for those of us without the 6" TFT)! Looks like there is a software development kit available, but I'm far from a top notch programmer.

                        It does have a graphical program. It's called "Cadet Radio Tuner Interface". And since it has a free development kit, it sounds like a great deal to me. I'm gonna order one next week.
