Excellent product for the price
 
I just hooked this tuner up to my audio stack last night and I love it. I knew what I was buying and it did exactly what I expected it to do. For the price, you can't beat it. I had been considering going the Rotel way with their HD Radio Tuner, but it was around $900. This was one tenth the cost to get into HD Radio. The pre-sets allowed you to go from station to station without delay, just like channel surfing. My powered FM Antenna was adequate to pull in the local HD stations. Sound was exce...

Sony XDR-F1HD
 
I listen almost exclusively to FM broadcasts. I live in a small town and the closest broadcasting tower is approximately 35 miles away. Several of the stations I want to listen to came in but with some static. I thought about buying a new Yamaha stereo receiver that cost over $450, in hopes of getting a clear signal. Then I came across a review of the Sony XDR-F1HD tuner, and the reviewer rated the tuner quite high. The tuner was affordable, so I thought I would give it a try I am now using ...

First of all, yes, this is a tuner, NOT a radio, and Amazon should correct that! Also, HD radio is NOT High Definition radio. The HD stands for Hybrid Digital. So don't assume you'll have better sound in HD than analog radio! That said,I have been interested in getting an HD radio to try out the format. Being an audiophile, I checked several audiophile review sites for the Sangean tuners, and they weren't getting too good of reviews. Also, their price is $200-250.Then I came across a review for ...

This is an amazing analog FM tuner. A few stations are listenable in stereo even when there's no signal indication on the display.There are a couple of annoying things that have nothing to do with the quality of the analog FM reception. There are three display brightness settings. The highest will light up the room. The dimmest is hard to read.In the Northeast we've had an unusual number of severe thunderstorms with power outages. When power is lost the tuner loses its memory and you have to res...

This is one amazing tuner. The performance on regular FM is on a par with the most expensive tuners. Superb sensitivity and selectivity. The Sony locks on to the digital carrier quickly, and displays the transmitted call sign, etc. on its bright LCD screen. More on that later. The AM performance is excellent, although a bit narrow-band for my tastes.What's not as stellar? The bright LCD screen does not dim when the power is off, the tuner 'forgets' its presets if there is a power interruption of...

Compared to the current Sangean, the Sony XDRF1HD is smaller, costs less, and gets as good of a signal. I have it on my computer desk plugged into my PreSonus Firebox amp.Nice features:* sleep button* remote controlNot so nice:* no volume control from Sony itself (would not matter if my PreSonus amp had a remote control)* does not remember channels or time after a power outageIf you have HD channels in your area that you enjoy, then this is a good box. I live in D.C. and basically got this box f...

Sony XDR-F1HD
 
Outstanding reception.Clear and without hiss.However,it does not pick up any AM stations with the supplied AM antennae.Interesting enough,some HD FM stations have 2 or 3 channels which surprised me.Inexpensive, yet high quality sound.Beats regular FM tuners that cost 10X more!

The receiver is a tuner that is very small and intended to plug into your existing stereo system in a living room setting and it does this very well.Acquiring HD is the fastest I've experienced, not the 8 seconds it should be, but close enough.There is a really handy arrow that tells you if there are more subchannels and if you should tune 'up' or 'down' to hear them. This is really handy since it takes a while to tune HD signals, even on the best tuners.Sound is excellent. You hear the talk r...

I bought Sony's XDRF1HD HD Radio based on reviews about its sensitive analog reception and, I must say, lives up to its reputation! On analog FM, the XDRF1HD pulls in distant New Hampshire country station WOKQ 97.5 despite being sandwiched between New Bedford's WJFD 97.3 and Boston area WKAF 97.7. Other (less sensitive) radios in our apartment don't detect WOKQ at all. Same with WRIU 90.3 Providence, RI. Religious 90.5 WSMA from Scituate totally covers up 90.3 on every radio but the XDRF1HD. The...

Sony XDRF1HD HD Radio This is a very good HD Tuner!The price is also very reasonable. The only thing that is not perfect about it is that it runs rather hot; so I would not put it in an area where there is insufuciant air circulation.
