Really... that's funny. I own a Alpine radio and am very happy with both
it's FM and AM reception. Its sensitivity and adjacent channel rejection is
outstanding. OTOH, My parents have a Sony in their car which doesn't have as
good of reception. I guess it all depends on WHICH model of radio you buy.
