As a general rule, (according to NPR) No.
Amplified for HD is not a good suggestion, and from what I have heard about their testing is that it actually reduced reception. I am not sure, but that is what I am told.
Still, the best FM HD Antenna (Also according to NPR Labs) is the C.Crane FM Reflect Antenna $25 made by Sangean. And I am not saying that just because I work here.
Does the Accurian come with a dipole antenna, whip, or pigtail? I have found that, even with our table radio (HDR-1) a dipole provides about 2-3db improved reception over the included whip antenna.
