The Denon is a superb tuner for the money. It'll be hard to anything for less than £50 for similar sound quality. I've owned the TU260 MKII for around 3 years.

Marantz also produce wonderful FM tuners. I still have a rare retro model from the mid-70s.

I've got a Sony ST-SE500 that you can have free of charge. You'll just need to pick it up. It is boxed and in very good condition. Ask the mods for my contact details if you want it.

Sadly theses days all but the most exotic tuners can be had for under £50, when used. Many are a tenner or less.

I bought my second Hitachi FT-5500 earlier this year for £20. It is a backup to one I've had from new and is still working beautifully. Maybe not an obvious recommendation, but as a tuner it is technically about as good as anything, so is ideal if you hsve poor reception, it aren't using a decent aerial. Super sound too!
