Depends on how well you get the stations you want. If you want any "fringe" stations, I'd say go with something newer.
But if your stations are all within, say 40 miles, and you don't have any severe multipath problems, I don't see why the SIR-T451 wouldn't suffice. Its a 4th generation tuner, while the H260F is a 5th.
I would just say that if the price difference isn't that great, then I'd probably go with the newer models.
The ZAT502, though, is new, and more likely to have a newer, 6th gen. chip than any of those others, which I wouldn't think would have any newer than a 5th, because they've all been out awhile. But I'm not 100% sure of any of that, really.
