The electronics retailer will also display window banners in stores across the country during the first week of December, as well as in-store visual merchandising.

Costco is currently providing a $20 rebate on the TEAC HD1, taking the price point down to $79.99, from $99.99,  through the end of November..

Crutchfield is running a special program designed to support multiple brands of HD Radio hide-a-way receivers; which when paired with a matching in-dash head unit, enable that head unit to receive HD Radio broadcasts and perform iTunes Tagging.
