You know the old saying: "If they can put a man on the moon..." why can't they take the best attributes of that XDR-F1HD tuner repeat with the RAMBO front-end! and stuff that along with the fm stereo dsp processing into a car stereo incarnation of the same. Every time I look at that technical review I ponder as to why I only have one of these things at work to pull in an otherwise impossible HD-2 signal with rabbit ears inside an RF-hostile factory, and not have one at home to play around with. That much said, the two areas where this tuner excels in, would provide the ultimate in FM signal handling. I've always HATED forced mono blending and the progressive "hi cut/soft muting" of weak stereo signals as well. Everyone's afraid of a little noise so rather than water down processable signals, why not take the best tuner on the planet and employ it in a mobile design for better FM stereo handling. Let's face it we'll always have to deal with where HD recovery gives up, so allow for the best analog signal processing of what's left of a fringe signal while in a mobile environment. Anybody here friends with Sony engineers? Write this down on a napkin for me for the next time you share a lunch!
