New Retail Price of $299 Will Enable More Listeners to Enjoy Digital HD Radio™ with HD2 Multicast, Enhanced Display Features and The Boston Sound™
PEABODY, MA, Jan. 31, 2006 - Boston Acoustics, Inc., a premier manufacturer of high performance audio solutions for use in home music and audio/video systems, aftermarket and OEM automotive systems, and custom built -in audio systems, has announced that its groundbreaking Recepter Radio® HD with digital HD Radio™ technology will be offered at the retail price of $299.00, effective Feb. 1.
Due to the increased awareness of HD Radio technology and the rapidly expanding universe of HD Radio stations, Boston Acoustics has made the commitment to bring the benefits and enjoyment of HD Radio to a larger audience.
"We're very excited about the level of interest our Recepter Radio HD has had from both consumers and the media," said Phil Cohn, Boston Acoustics Vice President of Sales. "We were the first to offer a table radio featuring digital HD Radio technology and are the first to be able to make this technology accessible to a broader audience of radio listeners. We continue to work closely with the broadcasting industry, which is quickly launching more and more HD Radio stations and HD2 channels across the country." More than 3,000 stations are in the process of upgrading to HD Radio broadcasting, with more than 700 on the air and several hundred also launching new multicast channels this spring.
The Recepter Radio HD is the first compact, high -performance, stereo, digital HD Radio table model that delivers brilliant clarity and high -fidelity sound. It is also the first home HD table radio to receive and seamlessly play the additional digital HD2 Multicast programming that many stations are now broadcasting. A compact satellite speaker allows listeners to enjoy The Boston Sound in true stereo, and a mini credit -card sized remote control adds to the radio's convenience and ease of use. Best of all, HD Radio reception is FREE, with no additional or recurring subscription costs.
