By Joseph B. Huber on March 10, 2009
I've had this radio for about a month. I purchased it as a replacement for my 25 year-old alarm clock radio, and also to see what HD radio was like. Overall, the workmanship of the radio is fine, and the sound quality is decent, given the size and price. The radio has quite a few features packed in for the money, and from that standpoint, it is a good buy. FM reception is good. AM reception is average.

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.

I have had the radio two days so it's a little early to write on the the overall quality but I can tell you a few things I have discovered. First and foremost, the FM/HD is a real treat. I live in an area where picking up radio stations is difficult at best. With the FM antenna that came with the unit, that problem is gone! Stations that broadcast HD usually have several different formats to choose from. For instance, 94.9 has three different choices; HD1 is music, HD2 is a different style of music and HD3 is talk. The sound from HD stations (which is a digital/analog hybrid) is really good especially for a clock radio and the regular FM (non-HD) and FM stereo are good also. A bit more about the FM antenna - it is 5+ feet long. I pinned it vertically on the wall behind a door so it isn't too obtrusive - others may be a bit challenged to find a good place for it.

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.

I just bought the TEAC HD-1 at Costco today, for considerably less that on Amazon (sorry!), and am very impressed with the quality and sound. It feel hefty and well-built. The audio is good for a unit this size, with the dual ported speakers and six watts of power. The HD radio feature, with the information scrolling and tab feature is very handy. My iPod Classic and the Ipod 2G Touch are both very happy with their new home. The included remote controls most of the iPod functions, too. For the price, this unit is a good value.

In September, 2008, I replaced a 20-year-old Panasonic clock radio with the Boston Acoustics Horizon Duo: Boston Acoustics HDUOMDNT Horizon Duo Speaker System (Midnight). It has great reception and very good sound. It met all my requirements - perhaps the only clock radio available at that time to do so, but has a problematic display.

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.
