This drives me nuts too. I would almost rather we stay in mono all day than have to put up with it.

Subject: [CRTech] Stereo imaging (Was SSB stereo)
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.
