Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revised Review Previous review indicated a need for external AM Antenna for finer tuning. Further troubleshooting indicated problem was caused by remote phone too close to Bose Unit .Relocating phone corrected problem(hiss). My bad...should know better than to question Bose engineering.
