You need to buy an external antenna to connect because the HDB point is invalid due to cease of analogue signal. I will rather use internet radio then adding the antenna.

Hello bros many thanks for your information!
Seem like online radio is the better solution to my case as adding a internal antena required an approval from my wife due to aesthetic.

Appreciate all your inputs bro!

Your receiver should come with a wire-type antenna.  U can hide that antenna behind your TV and connect it to the receiver.  Should still be able to get stereo sound for FM.
