Boston Acoustics announced at CEDIA 2005 that it will be shipping Recepter HD Radio. For those who did not catch up with HD Radio news here is a little intro from Boston Acoustics itself:
HD Radio technology radically upgrades sound quality and provides new wireless data services, while allowing digital broadcasts to be transmitted over existing AM/FM radio bands. Owners of the Recepter Radio HD will enjoy CD-quality audio and the elimination of static, hiss, pops and fades. They will be able to take advantage of a boundless array of new entertainment and information possibilities, including special program content such as station call letters, song titles, artist names and additional text — even RBDS station information for non-HD broadcasts. A seamless conversion process lets broadcasters maintain the current dial positions of existing stations.Also, Boston Acoustics reports that the stereo input of the unit accepts input from iPod as well as other external audio sources. The unit is priced at $499.
