Hm, my "butt dyno" of audio thought it did - but who knows. It did seem that I was a number or two higher on the volume than the previous unit, but that could just be a difference in calibration of the scale.

So, tooled around online and found the manual. I learned how to upload a screen saver. If you don't touch some select radio controls for 30 seconds the screen saver will come up. You have your choice of two in the system settings. Very easy to upload. Just dump a JPG on a USB Drive and upload.

I just picked a couple quick ones to try out.

Ah, another feature I left out earlier. You can see the HD/TAG button above.

1. HD Radio is streamed like digital cable. So, if you look @ my image in earlier posts you see 102.5 FM is selected. Well, about 3-5 seconds into the audio you hear a change over in quality. It's pretty dramatic. If you look up above where it says HD 1 2 3 etc. The 1 and 2 are highlighted. The technology allows this station to stream two digital 'channels' over 102.5FM. So, basically I can hit the HD button again and it will swap over to station #2.

2. The same button also has the tagging function. Let's say I hear a song I like I can press and hold HD/TAG and it will store the info of the song on my connected Apple device. I checked w/ both my ipod and iphone. Once you connect to iTunes all the data is there.
