Summary: I am 70 miles away from my favorite radio station (with mountians in between) and was tired of the static on my FM receiver. This unit gets the HDradio reception without any problem and things come in clear. I do have an antenna on the roof.
Summary: Easy to set up and a good design. Its HD search feature is terrific. The LCD is VERY bright, which can be distracting. No adjustment of display brightness is possible. Also, while I am in an area with a very good FM signal with just the included ribbon antenna, the unit struggles to keep the HD signal, which comes and goes, defaulting into regular FM. This unit definitely creates great sound compared to regular FM, but it needs a better antenna than the include ribbon.
Summary: I was very impressed with this tuner from Sangean and am thinking about buying another. Don't expect CD Quality sound but do expect...1. The ability to receive more then one format from the same station.2. An RDS system (radio data system) enables one to receive data information from non Ibiquity systems.3. A remote control that allows one to skip regular analog channels and go directly to HD channels only.4.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up
Summary: Great value. Excellent quality and attractive. Sound is fantastic. FM sounds like CD's and AM sounds like FM with no static whatsoever. It has a bigger footprint than I expected but would fit in fine with a component system or home theater system.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear sound, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
