I miss the Mono-Stereo switch on my first car radio. No auto blend to mono. Left on stereo most of the time, even when noisy. Had full separation in fringe areas.

Oh, man... my car radio is MUCH too aggressive with the "blend-to-mono" functionality! :( I'm still WELL WITHIN the City Grade coverage, and I'm hearing it open/close the stereo soundstage repeatedly! I would LOVE a "defeat" button on that!! :(
Of course, I'm keenly sensitive to such things, so I can't help but notice them... "Engineer's Ears". ;)

I wish receivers came with a way to minimize or defeat the blending feature; maybe a small pot behind a lift up panel. I’d rather the signal remain in full stereo and put up with a bit of chuffing rather than have it blend to mono or worse- having the stereo image constantly opening up and then collapsing.
