Boston Acoustics Receptor Radio HDWhen you hear the new tabletop Receptor Radio® HD for the first time, you will be stunned by the quality of its sound — with a spectacular clarity and amazing fidelity never before heard from any radio...of any size. A second satellite speaker delivers true stereo in The Boston Sound™ — a smooth, natural response, room-filling sound that belies its compact size.

Boston Acoustics® Receptor Radio HD has been specially designed to take full advantage of digital HD Radio — the new world of digital broadcasting featuring absolutely pristine AM and FM sound* ...all absolutely free. With this receiver, HD Radio FM sounds like a CD, and AM sounds as rich as today's FM. What's more, it is ready to play HD2 Multicast programming that many stations are now airing. Signal-fade, static, hiss and pops are virtually nonexistent. And with the auxiliary input, you can play any iPod®, MP3 or CD — any audio source with a headphone jack.

The Receptor Radio HD's surprising performance is made possible by a wide-range driver that is optimized specifically for this radio; it is combined with a digitally equalized amplifier that uses proprietary BassTrac® circuitry for full, rich bass tones, even a lower volumes.

This is a clock/radio too, with dual independent wake-up alarms. The large LCD clearly presents the station, clock, alarm and 60-minute sleep timer status. With HD Radio text, the multiline LCD shows song titles, artists and more. Times and stations can be rapidly selected by spinning a knob. Once you have stored your favorite stations, the knob can be set to tune in only those 20 presets. Other features include a 7-foot dipole antenna; headphone jack; and built-in backup of all settings when unplugged or during a power outage.

Boston Acoustics' elegantly simple design measures 4.5" x 7.5" x 6.75"; the matching satellite speaker is 4.5" x 4.5" x 6". Plugs into a standard outlet. Credit-card-size remote control runs on a CR2025 battery (included). One-year warranty.
