Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

HD Radio?

I've thoroughly enjoyed my NAD 418 tuner for about the past 20 years. Its truly a wonderful tuner that punches waaaaay above its belt (as long as you can live with the light bulb burning out every 5 minutes). I live in Houston. As much as I love this city and all that it has to offer, the radio here is TERRIBLE! We have less than 5 serviceable stations. This is quite shocking considering the city's size and rich musical history. Making matters worse, our only classical station just moved to HD. So I either need to get an HD radio or basically abandon radio all together. KPFT has a couple good shows on weekends, but you have to wade through all the baggage of pacifica!

So anyway, please suggest a good affordable radio. NAD's current radio is $400, beyond what I would like to spend. I was hoping to keep it under $100 but am willing to consider more expensive options.
