Radiosophy HD Radio Ships
Radiosophy announced on Wednesday that it had started shipping its MultiStream HD radio. Close in spirit to other receivers that support the HD Radio standard for receiving multiple data and digital radio streams, even on one frequency band, its key advantage is portability. The receiver is small and detachable from the main speakers, allowing it to be used either with a larger stereo or in a vehicle when used with a special adapter. To that end, the receiver has ports both for optical and RCA audio out as well as a minijack output for connecting to aux inputs in car stereos and computer speakers.
The radio's support extends back to AM and FM radio, and includes a USB port for updating features through an Internet connection. The company is selling the receiver and speaker dock combination today for $269.
