I am looking to upgrade the antenna on my Onkyo TX-NR808. Right now it is just a single 75 ohm conductor wire. I have though about trying a Terk amplified AM/FM antenna but most reviews say they dont work. The reviews say a Dipole antenna works better. A dipole antena is just like a regualr wire antenna only it is a Y instead of a single wire.
I would eventually like to try Onkyo's HD radio tuner but currently there are no HD radio stations in reach with my single wire antena. Omaha Nebraska is about 70-75 miles by line of sight from my house. I can get a few regular radio stations but they have a good amount of static. They do have a good selection of HD radio stations as well. So I am looking to improve my regular radio reception first in order to see if it would be worth the $125 dollar HD radio add on.
What do you guys recomend trying? Amplifed or Dipole
