As I primarily use this as an alarm-clock radio, my review comes from using the radio for that purpose. I don't use the iPod docking function, or use the radio for casual listening. As such, the radio has some short-comings as an alarm-clock radio, and that's why I only gave it three stars. If used the radio primarily for something else, like casual daytime listening or an iPod dock, I could easily see rating it higher. The issues with the alarm clock function are as follows:
1) The display is way too bright for an alarm-clock radio, even on the dimmest setting. Particularly if the radio is sitting on a nightstand next to the bed. There are are three brigthness settings, but very little difference between them. Due to the brightness of the backlight, it is very difficult to glance over and see the time when it is dark if you've been sleeping and have just waken up. Backlit LCD is not the best display technology for an alarm-clock application.
2) When the alarm starts the radio, the time is no longer displayed. You can push a button to display the time, but it reverts back to the radio information. Not exactly convenient if you are laying in bed and need to see what time it is. During the alarm-clock function, a time display is more important than the radio station frequency or other HD information.Read more ›
As far as the AM band is concerned - so far I am not impressed. The unit comes with (yet) another antenna for AM. It is a 5 1/4 inch hard loop. I haven't messed around with it much but so far I have only been able to pick up a couple of stations and those have static. AM can also brodcast HD and there are two that do in my area but I cannot pick them up. My old $20 clock radio does better on AM. I did discover two FM stations (there may be more) that use one of their HD channels (HD2, HD3)to simulcast AM stations.
The iPod dock seems to work pretty well. The quality of the sound is pretty good - not concert quality, but hey - it's a clock radio! It does have a line-out connection if you want to hook up an amp. It comes with four dock adapters - none of them fit my iPod (Nano 3G) but one came with iPod so no big deal.Read more ›
Today I updated my notes on clock radios, to add the Teac HD-1. I picked one up at Costco today, thinking to move the Duo elsewhere, but am taking the HD-1 back. It appears to meet all my requirements, but the sound is definitely inferior to that of the Boston Acoustics Horizon Duo. It sounds tinny, perhaps even shrill, even with the equalizer set to "Bass". I think my ears are particularly sensitive to shrill, so your mileage may vary - in fact you may be pleased with the sound. The Duo is about an inch taller with larger speakers, which accounts for the reduced bass capability in the HD-1.
Others found the HD-1 display too bright. My plan was to cycle the display off at night, but have the old Panasonic across the room, just for the time. The snooze display control is a good feature. Really good displays must be too expensive for this price point.Read more ›

The radio on the Teac HD-1 never worked right. It would tune for a while, then suddenly change. It is now gathering dust, and is not much use since Apple changed it's connectors.Published on August 25, 2013 by J. Mangi
