Biggest 'bang-for-the-buck' product that I've seen. Treat it like a high-end componet (isolation/vibration etc.) and it does not disappoint!

It does seem like a remarkable and innovative product, although I would suspect that the sophisticated digital signal processing which is used to achieve its exceptional measured performance, and its exceptional reception performance on weak stations, as well as the design compromises which are inevitable in a $100 product, probably limit its sound quality on strong signals somewhat.
J135: XDR-F1HD. Ordered from b&h photo in nyc. (free shipping!) Heard about it in the 'webzine, "Audio Critic."
Listened in amazement again last night to Benny Golson special in HD. She was runnin' warm so I'll be sure to register @sony.com in case I need to use the warranty. The heat may be just from turning the screen brightness to maximum.
Got my Sony XDRF-1 yesterday. On of the best audio purchases I've ever made. The sound is wonderful. If it remains reliable I'll be very happy. I'll have to get one for the primary system. Right now it's in the secondary system used for background listening. But it sounds so good I may put it the main system and check it's soundstaging/imaging capabilities. Got it for $80 on Amazon last week. Outstanding value.
