Good AM/FM antenna

by Big Steve - 12/8/12 12:15 AM

I have an old Pioneer Dolby Pro-Logic stereo receiver that I haven't used in a while but decided to turn it on the other night to listen to Christmas music. I have four Infinity stereo speakers connected to it which makes for good sound in my living room.

I do not have an antenna connected to my receiver to pull in stereo stations; I can only pick up a few. Years ago I had this T shaped antenna which I would tape to the wall which pulled in good reception but looked tacky as h*ll up on my living room wall.

I have a nice entertainment cabinet which holds my receiver; vcr; and stereo TV. Does anyone make and sell a good AM/FM stereo antenna which I could connect to my Pioneer receiver; set the antenna on top of my entertainment cabinet and be able to pull in more FM stations?

An antenna that's not super expensive. If not are those T shaped flat wired antennas still being made which I could probably connect to my receiver and secure the antenna to the back of my entertainment cabinet so it wouldn't be seen? Or is there an antenna which I wouldn't have to connect to my receiver; just set it on top of my cabinet and place it close to my stereo receiver so it could pull in more FM stereo stations?
