    Nowhere as good as the previous model

    Posted

    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

    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?

    Good portable/desktop HD Radio

    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!

    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.

    83 y.o. mom has her classical station!

    I got this for my elderly mother so she could listen to her HD2 classical public radio station in Maine. I was able to successfully program it and she is able to use it based on a two step process. You cannot turn it on to an HD2 station. It always turns on to analog (regular band) first, even with pre-programming set to HD2 stations. The print on the control buttons is very tiny and difficult for a normal person to see. The buttons are also small for older fingers to use. There are no pre-set buttons so you have to scroll through all your pre-sets to get to the one you want. The slim shape is nice. It was affordable and produces nice sound. I only wish it were "senior friendly". It is a much better option than her continuing to be angry at Maine Public Radio for creating HD Classical and then not having a regular station in her area. Nobody wants an unhappy 83 year old mother!

    Inexpensive HD radio, some design flaws.

    Posted
    jamesmay

    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.

    Great HD Radio...(Quality sound and reception)

    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.
