Nowhere as good as the previous model
Posted by: bobber from: on
Little tiny controls, black on black, nearly invisible. Presets have a default of #1. To change stations you must start at 1 each time. You want to go from 5 to10 it will go back to 1 and you must advance presets from 1 9 times to get to 10. Assigning presets is a nightmare.

won't return to last station
Posted by: 54321 from: on
okay if you want an HD1 station. But if you want to return to the HD2 station you last listened to, you won't get it when you turn on again. It reverts to HD1. And may take many minutes retuning to the station you want. WHOEVER HEARD OF A RADIO THAT CAN'T RETURN TO THE LAST STATION?

Portable, rich sound. Good buy.
Posted by: Cindyr941 from: FL on
I purchased this Insignia tabletop HD radio to replace a Sony clock radio that I had. I just wanted clear FM music. This is very basic, no clock, no Bluetooth, no AM for those who like talk radio, but if you want rich FM sound and HD capability where available, for the price, I think it's a very good buy. Unfortunately it doesn't pick up my favorite station in HD, <50 miles away, however the same station broadcasting locally in non-HD comes in very clear. The unit has a telescoping antenna and it is also portable, can be used with batteries instead of AC. It also has an auxiliary jack to connect with other music sources.

Inexpensive HD radio, some design flaws.
Posted by: jamesmay from: on
To start, I live near a major city where most stations broadcast in HD. So far the extra bands (HD2 and 3) seem to typically serve ether rebroadcasted AM stations or specific decades of music. The sound quality (at least when tuned to an HD station or used as a speaker for your phone) is good for a unit this size, perfect for a small room. Some problems however: The screen never shuts off or dims, even after 30+ minutes of use, probably leading to the radio's poor battery life(on rechargeables). Overall this is a good, small and inexpensive HD tuner, but that is all it is.

Good portable/desktop HD Radio
Posted by: Dfabs from: on
I owned the previous generation of this Insignia radio, and overall this new model improves upon the design. If you're looking for an affordable FM radio for a small room or bathroom, this is a nice option.
The sound quality is good, and it's probably the lowest priced HD Radio you can find. The sound is notably directional--meaning it's loud and clear when the unit is directly pointing at you, but the loudness drops off to the sides. This is a change from the previous model, but it's not necessarily a bad thing since you can direct where the sound is going (good in an office), but if you move around the room you may need to change the position of the radio a bit. This radio is best for news and talk radio, or music in an office, it probably won't fill a room with sound.
Tuning stations and adding presets to the memory is simple and works well, they improved the flow for adding stations to memory. The reception seems to be very good in the big city where I am located, easily picking up HD-1, 2, and 3 stations where available.
The design and build quality are solid. The unit is a little heavier than you might expect, but it seems to be well constructed and the quality is good for the price. It operates on battery or AC, I keep rechargeable batteries installed so I can move it from one room to another when needed. The AUX jack is convenient to hook up a phone to listen to music or podcasts, etc.
It would be 5 stars if the sound was a little more room-filling. Overall I'm happy with this updated radio, and I recommend it for radio fans on a budget!

Great HD Radio...(Quality sound and reception)
Posted by: Robert from: on
I do like this HD Radio. The radio has very good sound quality.
About the only thing that I do not like about the radio is that the
top controls are very small and very sensitive. The controls are
all located across the top and are difficult to select and keep on
the station that is selected.
I would like to see a larger selection of HD radios on the market
with the ability to pick up digital stations right off the air.

Nice little table top or portable. HD is neat and it has great reception. This is actually the second one I've purchased, it makes for a nice gift.

Nice radio with limited volume
Posted by: beeboy37 from: on
Overall, it's an improvement over current FM radios b/c it has "HD" capability. It's about time. There are many stations broadcast HD. However, there just isn't a lot of radios that have HD receive capability built in.
Listened to a station in Los Angeles, KUSC @ 91.5 with only "one" bar on the signal meter. That's amazing b/c the transmitter is 98 miles away using the builtin whip antenna! Not full quieting but pretty impressive.
However, the volume is low even at full setting so it is best used inside where ambient noise is at a minimum. Outside it is almost useless.
All things considered it's four stars.
