That reminds me of a another question I have. Is there a simple way to add some sort of L-R balance controls to an amp/sys that does not have one?

The sys I'm currenty setting up is just a very simple sys using a Lepai 2020 amp

I decided to just add a couple of 50w, 8 ohm L-pads between the amp and speakers.

For tons of stuff on FM antennas, both store bought and home-made see:

88108 MHz

He also has a page on the Sony "XDR-F1HD" tuner.
