Those of you with a converter box coupon burning a whole in your pocket (or on the brink of expiration), may want to blow that thing on Zenith’s new DTT901.
This new digital TV converter box includes analog pass-through, which will allow viewers to pick up low-power TV stations.
“The CBA is pleased that Zenith digital-to-analog converter boxes are now offered exclusively with the important analog pass-through feature,” said Greg Herman, VP of technology for the Community Broadcasters Association (CBA). “We tested the new Zenith DTT901 in April and find it to be a sound solution for the millions of viewers who require the ability to receive analog as well as digital broadcast signals. Zenith has long been a major player in the digital TV transition, and we’re delighted that all new Zenith converter boxes have analog pass-through capability.”
The unit delivers a small footprint, at 8 x 7 x 2 inches. Aside from boasting energy efficiency, the DTT901 also comes with a remote control, which offers one-touch control over closed-captioning, access to a program guide, a sleep timer, and Second Audio Program info.
“Some people are surprised at the strong interest in converter boxes,” said Richard M. Lewis, Zenith’s senior VP. “We recognize that many consumers who require a converter box for digital channels also will continue to enjoy low-power analog stations after next February, and including the popular analog pass-through feature provides the means to achieve this important goal.”
Zenith’s DTT901 is available now. Without the coupon, it will cost you $59.95.
