I remember that the early analog in-dash AM/FM/cassette "Supertuners" 
were trash, but the mid-70's underdash FM/cassette "Supertuners", the 
ones with the round dial (and no AM, unfortunately) were excellent on FM!

The later digital tuning "Supertuners" seem pretty good, a cut above Sony's 
and others for FM performance (sensitivity, selectivity, intermod. rejection).
