I'll eat the postage, and send it back. HD radio is a great concept, but when HD is decoded, it shouldn't be put through $10 speakers. Ibiquity is shooting themselves in the foot by charging manufacturers too much to license production of the HD Radio. There are a few good boxes out there for HD, like the BA Receptor, and the JVC car receiver, but this Sangean doesn't measure up. Poor sound quality, period.

The AM and FM sensitivities are very poor compared to other radios that I have. The clock is useless - it loses between 15-20 seconds a day. It does not have power loss protection. If you momentarily lose power, the clock (including day/date/year) completely resets to the default setting. Therefore, the Alarm functions are useless. I've had my unit for a week. I just sent the unit to the service facility for the clock inaccuracies. The cost - $8.00 for Sangean handling and $45.16 for UPS. Think Twice!

Product Overview

Sangean's HDR-1 tabletop radio features a built-in HD Radio tuner so you can start enjoying the new, free digital programming many AM and FM stations now broadcast. When you tune in digital HD Radio signals, you'll hear a marked improvement in sound quality — FM can approach CD-quality sound, while AM nears current FM quality. Plus, the HDR-1 does a great job pulling in standard analog broadcasts, too.

The HDR-1 lets you access the additional digital-only channels some stations are broadcasting — channels which can only be received with an HD Radio tuner. And stations can send text information with their digital signals, such as station IDs, artist names, and song titles. The HDR-1 displays this text on its large, easy-to-read LCD screen.

Whether listening to digital HD Radio signals or regular AM and FM broadcasts, you'll enjoy great stereo sound from the HDR-1. Two 2-1/2" speakers set in the acoustically tuned cabinet deliver rich, detailed highs and mids, with nice, round bass.

The built-in digital clock displays both time and date, and includes dual alarms with snooze, as well as a sleep timer. Adjust the sound with the bass and treble control, or just use one of the EQ presets. And you can operate the radio from across the room with its provided remote.
