Anyone listening to HD Radio yet? One of my local public radio stations is now broadcasting in HD Radio. Anyone know if tuners are affordable? Or how the quality compares to CD? Can you record from it? Impressions?

I hear ads for hd radio all the time from my local stations in ny. The only comercial for a tuner I hear is from Boston Acoustics.

Topic's already been discussed a few times. The rollout for the format is just getting started. For now, the selection of HDRadio components is limited (not surprising considering that most HDRadio products have been on the market less than a year), and the tuners are still somewhat expensive. But, with the number of radio stations already broadcasting or planning to broadcast in HDRadio increasing rapidly, and satellite radio tuner prices now dipping below $50, I'd guess it's only a matter of time before the prices start falling.

Thanks Wooch,

That'll teach me to ask first and search later...

What's the going rate for tuners?
