Default Stiletto Review (from an NYC'er)

So after mixed reviews I decided to take the plunge and picked up the Stiletto at Best Buy.

I live and work in midtown manhattan. I went for a brisk run this morning up and down the west side and then walked to work (crosstown to the East side). I am not using the dorkey antenna headphones and MY SIGNAL DID NOT DROP OUT ONCE.

I see how some of you might get frustrated by the unit if its constantly
dropping out but this unit is a must buy for the Manhattan commuter.

Im an now listening to my unit indoor in my office with no problems.

Very happy with my purchase.

Cool Thanks!

Cool!, I'm in NYC also and was thinking about going to CC to get one. Just not sure if I will strike up a new sub or move it from my xct7 unit.

Don't think you are going to get a great signal the whole way.

If you are in any major city, you will get great reception, in that city.

nyc reception is unreal, even getting a signal under some bulidings where fm/am radio used to always dies out. Stilleto is a good deal if you are by a repeater.

Exactly!! I get reception on my Stiletto where I could never get a single AM/FM signal. The repeaters are a work of God!

That's it!! I'm moving to New York!!!

Seriously, you guys are very lucky. Best I can hope for is a 5th satellite with the power of a repeater for the whole US!

I am in D-town, specifically Royal Oak and my signal is 2-3 bars inside my house without headphones. I love this thing!!
