Perfect reception of air-distributed content
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Getting the cable through a 2-story interior wall was an adventure, but the attic-mounted antenna has made a world of difference in signal strength for my TV. I haven't had a digital dropout/pause since installing it. I like that the amp turns on and off with the TV, wasting less electricity, since I'm using the USB port on the TV to power the amp. I recommend pre-drilling holes for the screws to mount the mounting bracket to the stud in the attic. I didn't, and that impatience cost me in the long run. Do your preparation thoroughly. Take your time. The antenna should serve you well for a long time. It's worth the time to install it well. It compliments my Roku TV very well. I can pull up a schedule of antenna-accessed content to figure out what to watch without wasting time channel surfing. This is not your grandfather's TV experience. Oh, and this was a refurbished unit. Better price, with no drawbacks that I've found yet.
Pros: Great reception. Well designed mounting kit. Good instructions. Hidden in the attic, not a traditional ugly set of metal antlers on the chimney.
Cons: Routing the cable through the wall can be a challenge. Think this through before setting out to do this, or consider an exterior mount.
