The Directed Electronics DMHD-1000 (MSRP: $199.99) is an add-on HD Radio tuner that can turn many factory or aftermarket radios into HD Radios.
The company says it is the first device to allow consumers to keep their existing car stereos while gaining access to the wide variety of additional free content HD Radio offers.
The DMHD-1000 comes with a tuner box, which is connected to a current car radio via a built-in wired FM modulator or the auxiliary stereo output. The DMHD-1000’s control panel can then be mounted on a car’s dashboard.
The panel’s backlit display shows station information, as well as artist and song title, with previews for additional digital-only HD Radio channels.
There is no subscription fee for HD Radio and there are currently over 1,100 HD Radio stations on the air. Visit www.hdradio.com for more information.
