Can anyone shed some light on this problem? I am using a Yamaha T-85 stereo tuner. It has meters to show the strength of signal quality. Yesterday after installing a Terk indoor antenna and properly positioning the antenna I was able to get a reading of 100% signal strength. This is the puzzling thing. The sound quality was not very good coming out of the speakers. I actually have better sound quality coming out when the signal strength is shown at halfway point on the meter. Why is this?
Is what I hear coming out of the speakers what I will get from recording? Or shall I record with strong signal strength and ignore sound coming from speakers and allow the DAC to filter out noise? As of yet I have not purchased a DAC for recording so I cannot test this ahead of time.
I am trying to put the components in place to capture fm broadcast, but I first need to make sure I have decent reception.
Thanks for any advice.
