Sony, of course. You must be much younger than I. The Sony Walkman first came out in the 80s, and everyone knew when you said Walkman, it was a Sony. Perhaps Walkman has become a generic name today. Sorry for the confusion.

The biggest factor is the antenna, how long it is and which way it's pointing, if it's directional. I have the Sony and the Sangean but not CCRane. I can't compare them on long-range stations but a mobile device such as the Sony will vary as you walk around because the antenna is coupled to the earphones. When I have mine bunched up to get them out of the way, even strong local stations's reception is poor so I have to let the cord dangle. But I don't try to listen to distant stations with either one and can't directly compare them for you.

I know this is kind of an old post, but I came across it while looking for the Sony Walkman radio myself. Got to eBay and search in Electronics for "passive AM loop antenna." I have an old (discontinued) Radio Shack version that looks a lot like some of those listed. It works GREAT with my Walkman for long-distance AM pickup. Best of all, no wires to hook up - you just put it right next to the Walkman, and it acts like a funnel fo the signal. You experiment around with positioning to get the best signal. Hope this helps...
