Pros:Good sound, feature rich, easy to navigate, changeable color & dimmer options

Cons:no user control to change default from HD to Analog

Nice unit, feature packed for the money. Good sound, feature rich, easy to navigate, changeable color & dimmer options, easy to read owners manual, but 1 glaring fault/oversight.

HD Radio receiver poor design by Sony.  Long ANNOYING, silent/dead pauses are frequent when reception is boardering max HD range (25-30 miles typically).  This silent/dead space lasts up to 15 seconds per episode as the receiver switches from HD to Analog!  Many stations broadcast in both HD & Analog.  Living 25 miles outside Pittsburgh, this makes for completely frustrating commute.  There are times I don't need digital sound quality (talk shows, sporting events, music), and would rather have reception than not.  That's not the case with this unit.  It acts like an on/off light switch.

Why can't Sony have a user controlled option to select the receiver default as either Analog or HD? 

> KENWOOD has a HD on/off button on the face of their HD Recievers!

Seems to me that Sony rushed this into production & didn't actually consider what most drivers will face in the US.  Big disappointment.

Returned the sony, bought a Kennwood KDC-HD548U
