Summary: Ok. sound as good as bose but much more reasonable.I pod interface a little sketchy but works once fiddled with. High quality of Sony stands out. hd radio works well with supplied antenna. large powersupply is strange but you forget about it once unit is set up. all in all I am satisfied.
Summary: This radio has a very full sound for it's size and can easily fill a very large room. 20 presets allowed me to tune all of the HD radio I wanted in my area (Philadalphia), and unlike most radio presets, these aren't divided into a set number for AM and a set number for FM. Want 19 AM and 1 FM? No problem (same in reverse). Want 5 presets only? No problem, define only five. IPod Dock with IPod control on both remote and radio allows menu navigation.
Summary: I am absolutely thrilled with my new Sony HD radio. Even a Luddite like myself found it easy to set up. The sound quality is absolutely amazing. There was no distortion at high volume levels and the surrond sound feature was great. All the hype about HD radio having CD quality sound was true;absolutely no static. The radio also allows you tag songs that you like for later download on your iPod. I had lost my favorite radio station when it moved to the HD band.
Summary: Make sure that the I-pod software is updated. If this is not done, you will see a message "cannot detect" when I-pod is in use(this is not in a trouble shooting manual). Make sure that you have a universal I-pod adaptor with a matching color (black). The power source is bulky. This product does not have a handle and it is hard to transport. Antennas for the radio also make it cumbersome to move from one location to another. It is more like a stationary unit.
Summary: GREAT HD RADIO WITH GREAT RECEPTION. PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED THE SONY HD BOX TO ATTACH TO MY SONY RECEIVER AND IT WAS HORRIBLE. THERE WAS SO MUCH STATIC AND YOU COULD NOT HEAR ANYTHING. AFTER BUYING THIS SONY HD RADIO I SET IT UP THE SAME WAY BUT WITHOUT THE RECEIVER AND I HAD CD QUALITY SOUND WITH NO STATIC. IT IS GREAT!!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS RADIO TO PEOPLE WHO WANT GREAT HD RADIO.
