I recently started looking into smaller HD radios and most recently have been looking at the HDR 14 and 16. In the process of doing my homework it looks like there was a very recent change to the HDR 16 that is a major pro.
The new version now has the MENU and INFO keys sharing a single button and the former INFO button now being remapped as a PAGE button.
Just like the HDR 14, the new 16s have a total of 40 presets 20 on AM and 20 on FM. It looks like they may have also changed the back light but it is hard to tell on the video that I saw. It makes me wonder if there were any other changes made under the hood that could affect either positively or negatively the HD reception as well as analog.
Here is a link to the YouTube video that I found the change through.
Thank you as always for all of the wonderful information you provide on your blog. I will be curious to see if there are indeed any other differences to this radio and maybe somebody else already has one that can comment pro or con about it.
Thanks, Benjamin for sharing your findings. If you’ve recently purchased an HDR-16, please comment!
