I am thinking about getting a head unit for my jeep to replace the stock one. Possibly looking into the JVC-HDR1

Isn't putting HD in a table top radio (i.e., relatively small speaker, small enclosure, weak amplifier, lack of anything more than rudimentary tone controls, etc.) kind of like putting lipstick on a pig?

Anybody else remember "Stereo AM" or "Dolby FM"? I'm smelling the same kind of hype all over again!

To be honest, when I first heard a commercial for "HD Radio", I thought it was a joke...


I don't listen enough to the radio to want either HD or satellite radio.

It would seem a number of people don't even know what the OP is talking about.

ETA: Before buying, you should see if your local stations are broadcasting digital signals

Otherwise it would be a waste right now.

The extra stations, commercial free, are very nice. As is digital FM, much nicer than satellite sounds, and it's free. I have 24 HD Radio channels in my area, with 2 more coming soon. Only one on AM so far, but I look forward to possibly more talk radio in the future.

Couldn't you get something like one of those Wifi streaming thingamajigs and hook it up to your stereo?

Amazon.com has a bunch of HD radios for home and car.

Well...... I ordered the Radiosophy it was the least expensive to try this out. I'll report back after its here

I have XM radio that I listen to over the internet. With a decent set of computer speakers, it's not too bad.

I thought about XM /Serius but just can't pay for radio.......................
