Does the 2007 have HD radio? I could have sworn i noticed a station yesterday that claimed to be HD, but i can't seem to get back to it.

nope...most stations are now broadcasting in HD.....like a tv though, doesn't mean that your actually getting the HD quality unless you have the nifty little boxes or whatnot.

Just as an FYI.. most people thing HD radio is "High Definition".. it's not... it stands for Hybrid Digital... much like satellite radio, only free...

Wow, I must have been mistaken. Thanks for the info. I can live without it personally. Between FM, XM, CD's, and soon to come IPOD I have more than enough to listen to.

nxlr8 is correct. HD in connection with AM/FM radio does not stand for "high definition." While the new added digital channels provide some improvement in sound quaility, it is certainly not "high definition" sound. The correct analogy is to compare HD radio with digital televsion. The digital signal provides somewhat better quality but is not "high defintion" as it applies to TV.
