Sony announced a new HD Radio table radio and in-car audio adapter and plans to develop and distribute a range of HD Radio-enabled consumer products over the next several years. Beginning in July Sony will begin selling the 100 dollar receiver-adapter and 200 dollar table top unit. Stations will promote the products as part of the HD Radio Alliance ad campaign as well.
The AM/FM/HD table radio (model XDR-S3HD) features a large back-lit blue LCD display set in a mesh-covered front panel and cabinet with rich cherry wood finish. Sporting stereo speakers with a simulated surround sound function, a built-in AM/FM/HD digital tuner and separate bass and treble controls, the table radio with HD Radio capability offers high-quality sound in a small package.
The HD Radio-enabled table radio and car adapter will be available online at www.sonystyle.com and at participating retailers nationwide.
