From Yamaha:

The T-85 Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Tuner incorporates the most advanced Yamaha tuner technology, making it the uncompromising choice for truly discriminating audio enthusiasts. The T-85 combines a number of proven Yamaha technologies and original features with sophisticated innovations that make it a reference standard in terms of sound quality, reception accuracy and operating ease.

CSL Achieves Exceptional Linearity and Low Noise Throughout Entire Band: The new Computer Servo Lock Tuning (CSL) system achieves stunning levels of performance in the T-85. First and foremost, it provides ideal reception performance under virtually any signal conditions. Also, the design of this system ensures that the tuning voltage itself is completely unaffected by noise from the PLL stage, so the signal-to-noise ratio of the local oscillator depends only on the inherent noise characteristics of the parts making up the local oscillator circuitry. These, of course, have been painstakingly selected to ensure an absolute minimum of noise. The overall result is a remarkably high signal-to-noise ratio across the entire 87.5 to 108.0 MHz band (98 dB mono, 90 dB stereo), with unprecedented linearity throughout the same range.

Four Different Tuning Modes: The T-85 offers auto-search and manual tuning in addition to the preset and fine tuning functions. In the Auto Search mode, the tuner scans the band in the specified Up or Down direction until a strong station is found. In the Manual mode, single-step tuning makes it possible to tune to a station's exact frequency for easy tuning of even weak broadcasts.

20-Station Random Access Preset Tuning: Up to 20 different station frequencies can be stored in memory for instant, accurate tuning at the touch of a button. Any combination of AM and FM stations can be programmed. To tune in a preset station, simply touch the appropriate button and the station will be precisely tuned immediately, for real operating ease and convenience. Station frequency indicator cards are supplied, so you can label your presets for faster, easier station selection.

Station Status Memory: When you enter a particular station into the T-85's preset memory, a few more factors than just the station's frequency are memorized. The tuner remembers whether the Auto Stereo or Mono mode was set, whether the Dynamic Auto Blend function was on or off, whether the Direct or Normal RF mode was selected, whether any manual fine tuning was employed, and which of the four possible IF modes was selected. That way, all necessary parameters for optimum station reception are recalled simultaneously with the station's frequency whenever the preset memory is used.

Last Channel Memory: This handy feature eliminates the need to retune your favorite station each time you turn the power on. When power to the T-85 is switched on, the last station tuned in before the power was turned off is automatically re-selected.

12-Segment Signal Quality Meter: This easy-to-read meter provides an accurate reading of overall signal quality, making it easy to achieve the best possible reception with the manual and digital fine tuning functions. This metering system provides a truly meaningful indication of not just signal strength, but actual signal quality, so that the highest display reading shows the optimum blend of signal strength and signal purity. This is especially helpful when tuning manually with the digital fine tuning control, since it gives a visual indication of the desired tuning point in addition to confirmation by ear.

Dynamic Auto Blend Circuit: When signal quality is low, stereo programs tend to lose quality and suffer increased distortion and noise more than monaural programs do. This special circuit compensates for this by automatically blending the left and right channels of a stereo program when signal quality drops below the limit of acceptable sound quality. The result is greatly reduced noise and distortion with enhanced intelligibility on programs that would otherwise be unlistenable. This circuit is 'dynamic,' too, automatically providing the optimum degree of blend for the prevailing signal conditions.
