I've been wanting to try HD radio for a while, and when a friend gave me a gift card for Christmas I plopped it down for this Insignia tabletop HD radio. I'm really pleased. I live in the middle of San Francisco and have never had much luck tuning in analog FM signals. They would fade and drift, hiss and squeal. This radio is the cure for that problem. With the built in telescoping antenna not extended I received 10 stations, 9 of which also had a secondary channel, for a total of 19 channels. When I extended that built in whip antenna I received 4 more stations, which when including the secondary channels came out to 7 more listening choices for a grand total of 26.

The unit doesn't sound bad considering it's size, but one if the first things I did was plug it into a decent 2.1 sound system Altec Lansing VS4221 2.1 Speaker System Music & Gaming System with Remoteand it is quite impressive. The radio seems to be quite bass heavy, which while not noticeable with its own speakers, shows up when plugged into an external amplifier. I just ran the bass way down on the external sound system and it sounds fine now.

I was hoping that HD radio would sound as good as streaming Internet radio, and it does. Here in the middle of the city I get all of the local HD radio stations and receive them flawlessly. I DO NOT receive the station broadcasting from the College of San Mateo (23 miles away) or the San Jose stations (47 miles away).

Also, I did not realize that this was an FM only radio when I bought it. Makes no difference to me, but it might to you.

There aren't too many radios that pick up HD stations. Insignia is one of the very few companies that include HD in their tuners. This is the best HD radio I've seen. It's compact, takes four AA's and is very selective and sensitive in receiving signals. You probably have to be thirty miles or so from the station transmitter to receive the HD signal and it's subchannels.

I live about 50 miles from Wilkes Barre,Pa and 70 miles from Harrisburg. Most of the signals come in where I live, but the HD signal does not. This morning I was 35 miles from Wilkes Barre and two HD channels registered. I look forward to bringing this radio with me on the road to see what I can pick up.

This radio also has an RDS feature that displays the call letters and the song that is currently playing on stations that do have that feature. Only other portable that has this is Sangeans PR D5. Now, if that radio had HD capabilities, that would make that model the tops in it's field.

Finally, an easy, convenient way to listen to HD radio. Now, only if there were more of these sub channels and the industry began promoting them.

This radio is FM only and also features an Aux In, which is a bonus.

At $30 plus on Amazon and $40 at Best Buy, this is a very nice receiver.

I've owned half a dozen HD radios--a couple of Sony's, a surpisingly good and practical iLuv radio, and 3 Insignias. Without a doubt, this is the best of the Insignias. The first--a small tuner--was "good"--but not if you preferred a speaker; the 2nd, a touch-screen version of the first model, was hopeless, so utterly useless that I tossed it in a fit of frustration. But the present model takes the best features of the first speakerless tuner, adds competent audio speakers (for the size and portability of the radio), and the result is a great little radio! I can take it anywhere in my immediate area and hear 24/7 HD jazz, old-time radio theater ,and NPR on our local public station (WGTD.HD). Plus it has maximum adaptibility or versatility, with all of the necessary jacks for AC, external speaker, headphones, remote control, pigtail antenna.

Simply with the rod in its folded, non-extended position, I'm able to get perfect HD radio at all times, without a hint of interference. Even the "non-HD" FM stations sound better to my ears than the less clean, always "compressed," sound of internet radio. But though the Insignia performs flawlessly locally, when I'm 30 miles away from the signal, the reception, at least when using the radio with batteries and the rod antenna, is intermittent or totally missing (with HD radio, you won't hear "fringey" reception: the signal is either there or it isn't.

As for audio quality, I'm surprised to see complaints--esp. in the case of a lightweight, compact and portable unit like this--about the speakers' lacking in power and bass frequencies. I've tried several of the latest small speakers in the 30-80 dollar range (e.g.

Verified Purchase
Relatively sensitive receiver. It does need the external pigtail antenna to pick up some local stations. Has mediocre low frequency response but plenty of preset settings. For the price, this is a good receiver for the kitchen or a desk at work,near a window where you can get signal. I do wish it had more front-end RF amplification so it could pick up stations further away.

Three honestly earned stars.
