We got our hands on Sony's so-hot new XDR-S3HD home HD radio. Here's the quick rundown:
- 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.
- 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.
