I've also wondered if the unit will be available at mainstream CE stores like CC or BB ?
Circuit City is hosting only the BA Receptor and in only 10 markets, limited.
BB has stated that they will not carry ANY HD Radio since it does not provide additional revenue stream like sattelite in the form of subscription kick-backs. They have decided their bottom line is more important that consumers interests.
However, you will find the HDR-1 at Crutchfield and probably Target and Microcenter at the beginning of next year. The HDT-1 will be harder to get since most retailers don't believe the consumers will be interested in them, so let your local retailer know where you stand.
J&R Music and Newegg are both great places to get either model of our HD Radio's.
As for the reception issue and SPDIF, it is not Sangean specific. Other manufacturers were going to put SPDIF in as well but found that it would make reception on AM almost impossible to get.
