JVC HDP1 HD Radio Tuner

JVC this morning released what it says is the first HD Radio receiver that can be added to any in-car system without swapping out the existing head unit. The KT-HDP1 can graft on to many existing systems and allows owners themselves to setup the radio; a do-it-yourself kit is available as one option along with a kit for listening in the home and a pro kit that ensures a clean installation for most any car layout. When ready, the HDP1 adds both the enhanced digital sound of HD Radio as well as text data from supporting stations, including song data as well as news or weather.

The system also receives standard radio and stores up to 18 FM and 6 AM presets in memory. A minijack output connects the receiver to headphones or any other small stereo speaker arrangement. The core HDP1 should be available today for $129; adding the DIY and home car kits costs an extra $49, while the professional-only kit is an extra $39.
