Great radio!

Strengths: excellent sound quality

Weakness: can't turn off the backlight completely (but can dim it - minor problem)

XDR-F1HD HD Radio Receiver.

Strengths: Excellent sound quality. FM stations sound like CD

THE BAD: No digital output; weak HD signals cause the XDR-F1HD to switch back and forth between analog and HD; the memory doesnt retain station presets if the radio is unplugged from AC power. THE BOTTOM LINE: Hailed by audiophiles...
