Coby Electronics offer HD Radios
Coby Electronics wants to bring a new range of receivers that will offer the wonders of HD Radio broadcasting into living rooms of users throughout the nation. These products are meant to offer as much bang for your buck as possible, opening up access to hundreds of new HD2 and HD3 channels and 1,700 crystal-clear AM and FM HD Radio stations without having to fork out a single penny in terms of subscription fees. The two devices in question from Coby Electronics are the HDR-700 Portable HD Radio System and the HDR-650 Component HD Radio Receiver, where both of them will hit the retail market later this August.
Coby’s new HDR-700 Portable HD Radio System is the first-ever cordless HD Radio receiver. Offering up huge sound from its compact design, this take-it- on-the-go system allows users to tune in to static-free digital broadcasts whenever and wherever they wish. With splash-proof housing and an integrated rechargeable battery, the HDR-700 can serve as the sole entertainment system – indoors and out! The small-scale unit also features an SD card slot for digital MP3 playback.
And the company’s HDR-650 Component HD Radio Receiver, the most affordable HD Radio receiver on the market, is a sleek capsule-like unit with a brushed- aluminum casing designed to complement existing stereo and audio systems. The HDR-650 features a high-contrast digital LCD screen that displays station, artist and song title information. With a built-in alarm and sleep timer function, the HDR-650 is a diminutive receiver that offers high functionality at a low price.
Both the HDR-700 and HDR-650 will retail for $149 and $99, respectively. Will you be jumping onto the HD Radio bandwagon just to keep up with the rest of the cutting edge consumer electronics world that has already made High Definition video a staple?
