Stock HD Radio in a Toyota Camry...

Post by K9EZ » Fri Oct 26, 2012 7:39 am

So I am driving with one of my sales guys in LA, and he has a brand new Toyota Camry Hybrid. Nice car. He starts showing me the trip computer then the stereo system. As part of this demo, has says, "You have got to see this new HD Radio thing. Especially on AM radio, it sounds amazing and better than the XM Radio here." He went on to show me examples of the HD Radio stations.

Now this was totally unprompted and from a non radio guy, just a regular average consumer. I just found the reaction interesting.

It seems like when people hear the AM digital version they're impressed. Problem is, of the original AM-HD stations, not many transmit HD anymore. Personally, I listen to the skywave HD-WCBS-AM this time of the year and it sounds great!
