I didn't want to hijack Phil's thread on the FM-3 so I hope I can get people to chime in here. From what was mentioned in the other thread, the Heathkit PT-1 is regarded as the best performer of the early series Heathkit tuners, and the AJ30 is the same circuit in an updated case. I'm wondering how other Heathkit tuners of that era compare, mainly tube type of the late 50s early 60s. I came up with a list of model numbers and short description, please add in any I may have missed:

PT-1 - Already mentioned as good performer
AJ10 - AM/FM similar in style to PT-1
AJ11 - Luggage Tan AM/FM
AJ12 - Luggage Tan FM stereo only
AJ30 - Luggage Tan AM/FM already mentioned as being the same at PT-1
AJ31 - beige FM only
AJ32 - Luggage Tan AM/FM stereo
AJ41 - Luggage Tan AM/FM stereo
AJ43 - Luggage Tan AM/FM solid state (I include this one only because it shares it's styling with the other models listed above)
AJ63 - beige FM only
