High-definition radios

To compete with satellite radio, AM and FM stations are going digital. “HD Radio” provides stronger signals, less interference, and CD-quality sound. But you’ll need a new receiver to listen in.

Polk Audio Designs HDX3
From the “minimalist design,” it’s clear that “whoever claimed more is better obviously didn’t engineer the HDX3.” The sound is stellar, and the speakers are itching to be cranked up. The built-in CD player is a “thoughtful touch.” Price: $300

Boston Acoustics was the first to introduce a tabletop HD radio. The LCD screen is “easy to read,” the controls are simple to navigate, and one speaker detaches to “add a surround-sound effect.” Price: $299
