Los Angeles - Sep 19, 2006 - Sangean America is developing two HD Radio receivers to be available to consumers for the 2006 holiday season. The HDT-1 radio component tuner will be priced under $200, and the HDR-1 tabletop radio will be priced under $250. Both receivers are multicast capable.
The HDT-1 tuner offers a PLL Synthesized Digital Tuning System, backlit LCD Display and available FM RBDS capabilities with PS, PTY, RT and CT features. The HDR-1 features an auto-tuning system, remote control and a digital output that allows it to be extended to an existing home theater system. The HDR-1 also includes a plug-in to accommodate an MP3 player.
Both units will display scrolling text, and each unit will receive analog signals from local AM and FM stations who have yet to upgrade to HD Radio broadcasting.
