TEAC HD Radio receiver
TEAC on Thursday announced the release of its first tabletop dock radio with HD Radio support. Besides improved audio quality, HD Radio support gives listeners on-screen artist and title information from the roughly 2,000 stations in the air. The HD-1 also sports a dock for charging and playing music content from iPods and iPhones. The artist and song information also enables the iTunes Tagging feature, which lets users save the information of a song they like and find the track the next time the Apple device syncs with iTunes.
Otherwise, the HD-1 functions as a dual alarm clock radio with a remote control and five equalizer presets for customizing the sound to a user's preference. A headphone jack and video and audio outputs are built into the HD-1. The TEAC HD-1 has an official $130 price tag and is available now at certain Costco stores in the US.
