Question HD Radio Tuner for Home Stereo? (2016)

Hello all, I'm trying to find an affordable HD Radio tuner to attach to my home stereo. Where I live many of the radio stations broadcast in HD and I'd like to be able to tune them in. I'm looking for something like this: Sony XDR-F1HD

It has a remote and and LCD Display and connects directly to a receiver. Back in the day I think they sold for around $80 but alas you cannot find them new.

Can anyone help me with this? Point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Matt

The Sony model you mention has often been hailed as "the best radio tuner ever". Given the glowing reviews, have you considered buying one used?

Unfortunately what's available new these days simply doesn't compare.....

Thumbs up Attention Industry, We Have A Product Requirement!

mattsse, here's a link to new HD Radio home audio gear known by Ibiquity (HD Radio inventors) to be presently on the market: Get an HD Radio receiver | HD Radio. There aren't any standalone tuner boxes listed there but there are definitely some high end AV receivers with HD Radio capability from a variety of manufacturers. You mentioned "affordable" so consider that the used market has Onkyo AV receivers with HD Radio tuners, and probably other brands do too.

As both of you mentioned, the amazing Sony XDR-F1HD might still be found on the used market. Likewise if you don't find a new HD Radio standalone tuner model on the Sangean web site you can check the used market for one of the Sangean HDT-1 or HDT-1X tuner models.

Magnum Dynalab

You can usually find one of the Sony units on Ebay, but the price will be between $100 and $200.

Magnum Dynalab has just come out with 2 stand alone HD units, however they may be out of your price range.

Does anyone know what the retail prices might be like? A quick search didn't turn up any of these new models yet. This is high end gear.

The people at Magnum Dynalab are a friendly bunch, if you contact them I'm sure they can quote a price. They also sell direct.

I don't know if the radios sold at MyHDRadio are any good, but it seems there are coupon codes to save 10% - go to your station's website and you should see the code in their HD Radio section

This is the first time I've seen an ad for various HD radios and I've been searching for several months. Thanks Blackburst for the link!

I've seen these available on ebay from the U.S. for about Cdn$21 after you add the shipping to Canada. But like the post I quoted, it looks like they were made four years ago, and the first thing I notice about them is that they have the big older 30-pin type of connector. Does anyone know if it will work with a more recent iphone or ipod touch if you use the right kind of 8-pin 'lightning' adapter?

Sangean HDT-1 Dead

My Seagean goes silent after a few seconds on.Happens even if i disconnect antenna.Back to my Onkyo T4500 analog tuner which sounds better on analog signals anyway.Sangean not best quality.Remote buttons stopped after first year than tuner buttons started to fail.Now complete failure.I have 3 older analog tuners that all work perfectly and are much older.I dont see any new good HD radio Home component tuners.
