I can pick up FM with a Sansdisk Clip, but my very-expensive tuner delivered signal with lots of static. Had an outdoor whip, but an outdoor Yagi was the best solution. If you got stations worth listening to, it is a worthwhile investment.
Amen to that.
Although I'd still like to understand why your Clip works better than your "very expensive turner", and why the Bose Wave is better than the Mac or Sansui for the original poster.
I'm assuming RF technology has advanced, and that is the answer, but it's only speculation. I know that little Sony HD tuner which was all the rage a few years ago was certainly a top performer, at least from a sensitivity and selectivity standpoint. Sound quality, not so much. I have one sitting here, and it never impressed me, sound wise.
I've never tried listening to FM on my Clip, but I will now, just to see if my results are similar to yours. Thanks.

Car radios, and the bose wave are designed to capture the signal - not render the best SQ from the signal available - two very different aims-
Thanks to all of you for your replies.
