Solid component, don't see the wows of HD radio yet

Cory, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I bought this HD receiver to pair with a new Clarion CX501 head unit. Installation was not easy as it's left up to you to figure out where and how to place the unit. I ended up using long cable ties and cinching it to a metal strut that holds the dashboard of the car. The pigtail from the car's antenna was not real long so I couldn't place this too far from the stereo. The connections between the car antenna and the HD box to the head unit is very easy.
  • Pros: compact design. Solid construction. easy connections.
  • Cons: HD sound quality is not significantly different than FM (It does say it's receiving Digital signal so I know it's getting the HD signal).

Clarion THD301 HD Radio™ Tuner

  • Summary: Purchased this with a Clarion radio. The unit sounds good WHEN it works; but the signal just keep going in and out. So annoying! I even had it professionally installed. At some point will have to get it removed so I can listen to regular signals again.

Clarion THD301 HD Radio™ Tuner

  • Summary: sorry to hear the other reviewer havin issues BUT, not sure if he understands hd radio and definately has an issue. WITH HD RADIO JUST LIKE HD TV YOU EITHER GET A SIGNAL OR NOT. HEAR ALMOST EVERY STATION BROADCAST IN HD, AND BELIEVE ME THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE. also sounds like you have an install issue, you should not be having this problem. Hear in KANSAS i can pick up stations from OKLAHOMA and MISSOURI, no fading in and out.

HD RADIO Not Worth the $

Fre', Crutchfield
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Clarion HD radio tuner to be added to the Clarion car stereo that I also purchased. I had it professionally installed to insure that it was all done correctly. After having it for about 1 month, I feel that it's not worth the $99. (plus installation) I paid for it. I don't know if it's the Clarion tuner, or HD Radio in general, but there are very few HD stations.
