    HD Radio worth it?

    I'm considering buying a new head unit, mainly for Sirius so that I can get my Satellite Radio back.

    Is HD Radio worth it? I know of a few stations around here that advertise their station as also broadcasting in HD.



    I found a headunit from Kenwood that does both built in, for $299. The only thing that sucks about it is it only displays one line.

    Does HD radio also stream the song name/artist like satellite radio does?

    i dont think HD radio is worth it unless you live within 30 miles of the transmitter since the digital signals are operating at a fraction of the analog signal the digital signal is very limited.. trees, buildings and terrain cause the digital signal to go out even in the primary service area..... not worth it. sorry

    Has anyone used the JVC KD-HDR1 which has built-in HD radio (receives multicasting content ) and retails for around $199.99?

    Looks like a decent unit that plays both MP3 and WMA files and Ipod ready.

    I might get one to see what the HD radio is all about here in Los Angeles..
