HD means "Hybrid Digital"

John C., Newegg
10 April 2010
  • Summary: You should be informed that the "HD" in HD Radio means "Hybrid Digital" and not high definition. The digital audio quality is approximately that of a high quality .mp3 file.
  • Pros: Three eggs because I do not own on this product.
  • Cons: It's not really high definition radio.

Good Sound - Poor Quality

Alan C., Newegg
23 October 2009
  • Summary: Of all of the sources that I had to return this unit to, Newegg was the easiest, extremely hassle free
  • Pros: I am a sound contractor. I install sound systems into schools and government facilities. Sound is excellent, as advertised: CD quality. Reception good. Overall fit and finish good. Easy to set up and use. A nice, realtively inexpensive way to add HD radio to your system.
  • Cons: Poor manufacturing/distribution quality control. I have purchased Seven of these units from a variety of sources. I had to return 5 of the 7 because something was not working or broken when I first took the unit out of the box. When they work, they work great.

Forget the mumbo jumbo

Me, Amazon
4 July 2009
  • Summary: After all the mumbo jumbo I read on this HD tuner I really had my doubts despite the low cost. I bought it on Amazon from Egroup. The unit came in perfect shape. I live in the Dallas area. I have the tuner hooked up to an Onkyo 606.

Works, Cheap

rhhardin "rhhardin", Amazon
8 June 2008
  • Summary: The local AM station simulcasts on one of its FM sister's subchannels so I got the tuner to get pre-sunrise reception of that. That worked fine. It doesn't cost too much. I notice on AM that sometimes, with a really good antenna system by the way, I can get AM HD at 500 miles range, around sunrise.

HD RADIO

Pogue Mahone, Amazon
28 March 2008
  • Summary: Product was delivered before promised time and checked out fine. I was surprised at the number of HD Radio stations available in the area. Why is this not being advertised?? In this area there are 24 hour classical, blues and hip hop stations with no ads.

Fixed my spotty FM reception

J. P. Profilet "walking woman", Amazon
24 February 2008
  • Summary: A real step up for us who live at the bottom of a hill and have endured marginal FM reception as a result. I can listen to our local classical station now without listening to hiss during the quiet passages. Sound quality appears to be better than what we get with Sirius radio.

Marginal improvement

BW, Amazon
8 February 2008
  • Summary: Based on other reviews, my expectations were not too high, and it was a good thing. I have a high end SONY receiver that does not get FM well. For some reason, getting good FM in my car radio is not an issue but sitting in your car whenever you want radio at home is not a good alternative.

HDT-1 Review

S. Earhart, Amazon
23 January 2008
  • Summary: I am very satisfied with the Sangean HDT-1. The reciever is very sensitive. I do use an outside antenna. I live about 60 miles from most of the HD stations, but have a full scale signal on them with the outside antenna. The hookup was easy and it is pretty easy to use.
