"Excellent Radio Tuner, HD A Bonus"5.0 starson by fsclaol
Pros: Excellent sound from broadcast radio. Difficult to imagine this is FM sound from main broadcast station frequency and side bands, offered at an excellent price
Cons: Must reprogram radio stations when unpowered (unplugged / power failure).
20 FM presets are not enough in media rich market.
Summary: This tuner now resides in the hifi system and provides excellent radio sound. Posted by another reviewer, this is a must read link and needs repeating: http://ham-radio.com/k6sti/xdr-f1hd.htm
It also explains how good this Sony tuner is, expecially at this price point.
Station sensitivity and selectivity is outstanding even with simple 300Ohm dipole flat antenna converted to 75Ohm. If you are in a content / media rich radio market, 20 FM presets are not enough. Strong HD stations along with any sidebands sound crystal clear.
Very happy with / listening to my Sony Tuner / HD Radio and highly recommended.
