Lousy AC adapter

Today, for the first time I enjoyed Beethoven' s 9th from DW on the Morphy Richards in the livingroom with the built-in telescopic antenna running on 230 VAC with the AC power supply which came with the receiver!

If you take a hammer and chisel, break the cover of the AC supply apart, solder 4 pcs of 10 nF capacitors across the rectifier diodes, then it works! All the horrible buzz and noise from the power adapter disappears!

Later in the evening I heard AIR Khampur, Langenberg and RAI on 846 kHz without problems. Why can't they think of this at the manufacturers???? A lousy AC adapter ruins the reception totally...
