Have You Heard HD Radio Yet? It is Awesome.

High Definition Radio is becoming a very useful tool for your music listening pleasure. I use HD Radio when I am checking out 98.5 KUFX in the Bay Area online. The sound is superior to that of regular radio. But it is important to note right off the bat that HD Radio is not Satellite Radio. It is simply a digital version of the radio broadcasts you hear on your home or car stereo.

The tools you will need to get HD Radio is a HD Radio Receiver and of course some type of list of available stations to choose from in your area that broadcast in HD! For example if your a person living in Texas you can get a list of Texas High Definition Radio stations right on this website page.

One of the neatest things you can do with HD radio is iPod tagging which means that while your listening to your favorite music if you hear one you like you simply use your iTunes Tagging enabled receiver and hit the "tag" button. It is that simple to do and then you have a saved list on your receiver , a play list you can use later to download the songs from iTune with.

You owe it to yourself to find a place where you can check out a High Definition station on a HD receiver, you will never go back to regular radio broadcasts again.

I am looking into the Jensen JIM-525. Do you think HD radio is really worth the cost. This site says consumer reports claims yes, but I read conflicting things. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
