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?
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.
I bought one Gigaware HD Radio Receiver for iPhone ...
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?
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.
