    As I posted in the ICE section a few days ago regarding ICE from the USA, the same stands for home audio:

    Yes but not very well, the US uses different channels spacing on radio and different de-emphasis on FM. So you will get some stations and not others and those on FM you do get might be sibilant. There are adapters around to change the channel spacing but by the time you have bought one of them probably the overall cost makes it uneconomic. Also no RDS on US radios.
