"KD-HDR1 is very good, but..."4.0 starson by briansmac
Pros: great sound, great features
Cons: auto time set should be standard on this unit.
Summary: The radio is truely a great receiver. It took about an hour or so to fully understand what all the features are/do. I was somewhat disappointed that the auto time set and DST are not included as a standard feature(s). You must have a satelite radio unit attached to communicate with a certain broadcaster. I would think the signal could come from the atomic time server in Boulder, CO just like my atomic wrist watch does. May be an idea for future receivers. The AM radio was especially sensational for me since the analog radio here in Colorado Springs has much to be desired with interferance, hissing and popping. The receiver eliminates all the noise and improves the sound quite a bit. There are a few times on our busy Academy Blvd where analog AM radio cannot pick up Denver radio stations because of major noise and interferance from power substations and power lines above. This receiver did still pick up the radio stations that previously had all noise problems in these trouble spots.
