Thanks much, Exdilbert. I suppose improving the RF end - at least upstream of heterodyne stage - doesn't introduce distortion but does add sensitivity and selectivity.
Given the commercial imperative to be loud, near-hopeless that broadcasting will play nice. But CBC-FM in Toronto at 94.1 (I will never remember if that has the totally stupid name of #1 or #2) has excellent fidelity. Likewise for HD, PBS stations (such as in Buffalo, 94.5), provide sound that's about all I could ask for.
