I just bought the radio today. The reception is awesome. I was really pleased. The HD is also great and works well for my area. I just wish it had a manually adjustable EQ. But the radio sounds great too.

Easy Setup, Great sound, Looks Great

NO Manual EQ adjustment

I don't care what the box says this does not work reliably with the iPhone. It constantly reads the phone as an iPod and the controls stop giving you the ability to skip through songs after about a minute of play. Other than that no problems. I just...

For a radio fan, this is the ticket!


I just purchased the radio. Seems very well made; a serious, somewhat heavy radio. Sound quality good, and reception also good. I don't know much about HD radio, but this Jensen radio is awesome as far as I'm concerned. I have owned an iPod and two of...

Durable, Easy Setup, Great reception, Nice styling

Tired of 'tag available

Consumer review by:

Excellent product, unparalleled value


This is by far the best tabletop HD radio in this price range (there are very few choices). It is much, much better than the [$]- Sony that I returned, and well worth the $$ even if you can only pull in a few HD stations. How much you can pull in...
