I rest my case (Parp! Oops, sorry.)
I see I can also buy an ersatz Goldmund amplifier case for about 25 bucks as well. Rip the guts out of one of those Behringer things, drop it in its new home and off you go. Bargain.
Actually, the bandwidth of European AM radio is 5kHz as there is 10kHz spacing between channels and each channel has sidebands going out each side. AM radio in the USA allows 10kHz bandwidth and stereo, and it sounds pretty good if heard in a strong signal area. It's not as clean as FM, but can be EQd to have a slightly rising top which covers the missing HF quite effectively. It's still prone to fading and interference, like all AM, but it's not at all bad. The stereo is pretty good too.
European AM is also equalised to create the impression of some HF, but obviously with only half the bandwidth of the US version and no stereo, it's a long way behind FM.
That approach is very shameful indeed Miles.
By insisting on buying Swiss, you are not reducing Chinese greenhouse gas emissions, rather you are increasing global warming on account of the amount of baked beans you will necessarily have to eat ever after.
BTW - How d'you make a Swiss roll?
Give him a kick in the Boenickes*
*and while you're at it mention there's a Chinese copy on the market made from - bamboo! Adds exponentially to the price of anything these days. I'm vast rustling plantations on the shores of the Zürichsee in the near future....
