The think I like most about my Sony XDR-F1HD is that it's a *hot* FM
tuner, HD or no.  I take it on trips for airchecking.

I do have the Sangean component HD tuner downstairs in the living
room, where having HD really helps to pull out decent audio from the
multipathy Boston FMs (WGBH in particular).
