The most recommended preset

The preset " FM Station - Smooth Listening (Favorite FM ) " has been tuned most carefully. Its sound is very close to actual prevalent FM sound on the air. The peak level of high frequency band is suppressed beautifully and it sounds very musical. If you want more crispy sound, the preset " Digital Broadcast - Wide Stereo(General Purpose) " is recommended. :-)
