Sony FM tuners are almost uniformly crap.  (And I say that as a steady
customer and happy owner of many pieces of Sony kit.)  This certainly
includes the FM tuner in the 2010, although it is better than many
other Sony products; it has very poor selectivity and is prone to
front-end overload.  Probably if the IF filters were replaced (Sony
likes to put 230-kHz filters in their tuners) it would be an OK tuner.
