Great product if you have HD stations in range
 
Sangean has designed an excellent product in the HDT-1X. But its limitations are mainly a factor of the availability of HD Radio. While most stations except for those in very rural areas broadcast HD Radio, the little-known fact is that the power of an HD signal is only 5 per cent of the power of the normal (analog) signal. Without getting too technical, HD Radio "rides along" on the sidebands of analog FM. What this means is that it doesn't carry anywhere near as far as analog FM. I live in Sou...

DXs Well
 
I live 60 miles east of Denver. Most of the stations that I listen to, with one exception, broadcast from there. I was concerned about reception because of the distance; non-HD FM reception was adequite with a high quality indoor FM antenna; with HD I am amazed. There is no hiss even when the tuner has to switch between HD and standard broadcast to maintain the signal. This switching is more like blending. I've only noticed it twice (It's displayed on the scree...

A great way to start exploring
 
I have been following the development of Hybrid-Digital radio (HD) since I listen to radio more than any other audio source. I finally made the move to an HD tuner recently with the purchase of the Sangaen HDT-1X and I would like to tell you my impressions of the hardware and the sonic quality of the signals I'm receiving. Prior to the HDT-1X my experience with FM tuners has been with vintage equipment from Sony, Sansui and Kenwood.The HDT-1X is an audio component designed to be used...

Even better than the HDT-1!
 
The HDT-1 is an excellent tuner however being the initial offering from Sangean there were some annoyances like the display that could not be dimmed and no optical output. Well these two issues have been addressed in the HDT-1X! Other improvements like forced analog mode; split comparison between HD and analog signals; accurate time keeping; display that goes black when in the standby mode but you can push the INFO button and the time will come on and stay on for a few seconds. The sensitivit...

Sangean, a great tuner
 
Want HD radio, and don't want to buy a whole new setup. Purchase the Sangean HDT-1X and add it to your existing stereo. This tuner is very sensitive. It is able to capture FM stations in the 60-90 mile range. This has to be one of the most senstitive tuners out there. It rivals the component tuners of the 1970s. The tuner has a large text screen that displays artist, and song title. The Analog FM section also displays RDS text. HD radio is all over the US now. There is nothing on the mark...

Excellent unit and great customer support from Sangean
 
I'm mostly a classical music listener. And I don't say that to be snobbish to those who listen to other kinds of music. In fact, I have very diverse tastes in music, and I like to view new equipment purchases with that mindset. However, if you're accustomed to listening to the only classical FM station in town that is always sort of scratchy sounding, you may have wondered why HD radio was only offered for vehicles in the beginning stages of HD. This unit is your answer. Despite any shortco...

At last - the only affordable component HD receiver
 
Things I like about having this HD reciever: - HD sound quality - HD signal reception -- I can pull in all kinds of stations I couldn't get before - More programming (i.e. HD1 is usually the same, but others are additional programs) ------ (sometimes HD2 or even HD3 on some - one local station has rock on their HD1, Blues on their HD2) - Extra HD stations are usually advertisement free (at least for now) - some surprisingly good programming - even innovative...

Sangean HDT-1X
 
This is one of the best tuners I have owned:very sensitive, picks up lots of stations. I don't know if they(Sangean) did this on purpose, but it takes a second or so for the HD broadcast to lock in. This provides you with the opportunity to hear the difference between Analog and the Digital, and even though the Digital is lossy compressed, it still trounces the Analog, even when on the FM band! And especially on the AM band. More clarity, wider seperation, better frequency response and no noise!...

It Works Good!
 
I was soooooooo happy to get my regular analog FM receiver working with the Terk FM Pro antenna that I got interested in HD radio. I bought the Sangean HDT-1X HD Component AM/FM Tuner and it worked fine except for the bright blue screen, and it has a huge ugly digital clock when you turn the unit off. Where is the button to turn that off completely? Options please! Better yet they should have put a standard display on it in the first place. The Terk FM Pro antenna almost eliminated the need for ...

Clean to a fault
 
When you first listen to the Sangean HD-1X HD tuner, you hear how clean the signal is. The sound is so clean that it doesn't sound like any other FM radio. The mistake that I made was to do a comparison test of the Sangean with the tuner in my Yamaha RX-770 receiver.The Sangean tuner cleans up noise. That's good. Right? But a drumstick hitting a cymbal makes noise, so the Sangean sweeps it into the wastebasket. All drum sounds are significantly reduced. All of the sound information t...
