|Bottom line|| |
While the HD Radio format still has its foibles, the Insignia NS-HD01's $50 price tag makes it recommendable for anyone who wants a cheap, easy, and portable way to enjoy digital HD Radio stations.
The Polk Audio I-Sonic ES2 pairs the same excellent sound as its predecessor with an improved design--but we would've liked more features at this price.
Though it does include an HD Radio tuner at a fairly low price, the no-frills iLuv i168 doesn't offer much to distinguish itself from the clock radio competition.
The Zune HD delivers one of the best portable music and video experiences money can buy. At a time when many people have shifted their focus to games and applications, providing a killer media experience may not be enough for potential Zune buyers.
The Sangean HDR-1 is a capable tabletop HD Radio, but its lackluster controls and dearth of extras leave only its retro wood styling to distinguish it from the competition.
