RE: Mobile Receiver - Sony or Alpine

I have had the Alpine AM/FM/Cassette w/CD 6-pack changer.  I bought it
around 1992 after checking many models.  I am extremely fussy with
Sensitivity and Sensitivity.  And by far, this unit and a Kenwood at the
time, blew away all the rest.  This has a nice "S unit" too.

        My brother's Alpine was at least ten years old, so it may not
reflect what they're making now. Without comparing them, I guess I'm just
saying I think a Sony like the two I've had over the past ten years is a
good bet to have good AM. No matter what you have, if your car is a few
years old, it also pays to clean up the connection between the antenna and
the car or even get a new antenna after awhile.
