Los Angeles - Jun 6, 2007 - Sangean has added the HDT-1X, an enhanced version of its component tuner, to its product line. The HDT-1X adds several features to the existing HDT-1. These include a S/PDIF optical output, forced analog mode to force the receiver into analog reception, a split-audio mode to provide digital audio in one channel and analog in the other and a rack-mount adapter.
The HDT-1X uses the same display and enclosure as the HDT-1. Pre-orders are now being taken, with shipping expected in the middle of June. Sangean notes that the additions were based on input from users. A Field Report on the HDT-1 appeared in the June 2007 issue of Radio magazine.
