Sony XDR-S3HD HD radio hands-on

Ahh to be the editor of a high profile gadget blog! You sure get to play with a lot of cool toys, including Sony’s newest HD Radio :).


We like: Gorgeous, mid-century modern design. Clear, easy to read display, even uses RDS. Phone-like reception meter even works with AM/FM. Decent enough sound output. We don’t: Massive friggin power brick. Oh, and it can’t be unplugged from the unit. Annoying to scan channels with the dial. Included aux cable looks like it will fit your iPhone. But it doesn’t. Actually still blinks 12:00 if you don’t set it. Sheesh.
