Forget the HD feature, I am now eyeing the Sony XDR F1HD. Great Dxing stereo I hear.
I ordered a Sony XDR-F1HD this week from Amazon for $100, so this promotion comes as a pleasant surprise. The form doesn't specify that the text message must be sent before
purchase or sent from a cell phone, so to avoid the possibility of "Text Spam", I'll send it using an free online SMS service next time I'm at the public library. However, I see that employees of "corporate investors in iBiquity Digital are not eligible for rebate" so if you work for one of those big radio groups, don't bother.
By the way, there's a mod to force this tuner to analog at:http://www.ham-radio.com/k6sti/xdr-f1hd.htm
Unfortunately, Sony didn't take full advantage of DSP to improve the AM analog bandwidth and signal/noise, but I'm looking forward to the FM stereo performance which appears incredible.
