About the Boston Acoustics Recepter Radio® HD

You've probably heard about digital satellite radio, but did you know that some of your favorite AM and FM stations are also broadcasting digitally? HD Radio™ technology enables markedly improved sound quality — FM approaches CD-quality sound, and AM resembles current FM sound quality.

You've probably heard about digital satellite radio, but did you know that some of your favorite AM and FM stations are also broadcasting digitally? HD Radio™ technology enables markedly improved sound quality — FM approaches CD-quality sound, and AM resembles current FM sound quality.

The Boston Acoustics Recepter Radio® HD lets you enjoy these free, over-the-air digital broadcasts to the fullest. A multi-line display shows song title, artist, station name and other text information normally accompanying HD Radio broadcasts. The Recepter features wide-range drivers optimized specifically for radio, and special processing for natural bass response. A pair of speakers — one built into the radio, and one in a separate enclosure — deliver spacious stereo sound.

The simple front panel makes it easy to operate the radio and clock functions. You get dual independent wake-up alarms — handy for working couples. The alarm controls are top-mounted, with the programming buttons protected by a flip-up panel to prevent accidental resetting. A built-in capacitor provides a battery-free memory backup — you won't lose your radio's settings if the power goes out. And the Recepter's highly sensitive AM/FM tuner pulls in your favorite stations cleanly and without distortion.

Features

HD Radio: HD Radio is digital FM and AM broadcasting, allowing you to enjoy your same favorite FM and AM stations with digital sound quality. FM stations offer near CD-quality sound and AM stations sound like today's analog FM stations. Because the transmission is digital, multi-path distortion (a common problem with analog radio, receiving signal reflections slightly later than the direct signal) is eliminated. Stations broadcasting HD radio can also pass along text information, such as artist name, song title, weather, traffic, etc. Another benefit of FM HD radio is a station's ability to multicast, broadcast multiple programs (up to seven) using their existing frequency. The display shows multicast stations with the frequency followed by the multicast number, 107.1-1, 107.1-2, 107.1-3, etc.

Tuner: The Boston Acoustics Recepter radio has a highly sensitive AM/FM digital tuner. It can pull in weak FM stations while its high selectivity allows it to separate closely-spaced stations clearly. The tuning knob makes it easy to manually tune to your favorite stations.

Presets: The Recepter radio features 20 station presets for your favorite AM and FM stations, including primary and multicast HD stations. Once you set the preset stations, you can quickly tune only the preset stations with a turn of the tuning knob.

Antenna Inputs: This unit is equipped with a built-in AM antenna. External FM wire and AM loop antennas are also included. The FM antenna input on the back of the radio is a threaded coaxial jack (75Ω) and the AM antenna input has spring terminals. When using the external AM antenna, first disconnect the internal antenna from the spring terminals.

Speakers/Amplifier: The Recepter features wide-range drivers, specifically designed for this radio, with a rear-firing ports to enhance the bass output. These high-performance speakers are coupled with an actively-equalized amplifier that uses Boston BassTrac circuitry for full, satisfying sound, even at low volume. The result is a unit that delivers smooth, natural response and room-filling sound despite its small size. When placed near a wall the bass may be too pronounced, in this case the bass trim function can be used to turn the bass down.

Display: The unit's large easy-to-read display clearly shows the station frequency, preset number, HD radio text information, clock, and alarm/sleep status. If desired, the display can be dimmed. The display dimensions are 2-1/2" wide and 1-1/4" high.

Dual Alarms: The radio features two independent wake-up alarms, each of which can be set to music or tone. When the alarm sounds, the snooze function will silence the alarm for 10 minutes. If you push the snooze button again within 3 seconds, you can add another 5 minutes to the snooze time, up to a maximum of 60 minutes.

Sleep Timer: You can set the unit's sleep timer to play the radio for a preset amount of time, then turn itself off. The sleep timer can be set for 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60 minutes.

Auxiliary Input: A mini-jack input (1/8") on the back of the radio allows you to play an external source through the Recepter.

Headphone Output: There is mini-jack (1/8") headphone output on the back of the radio. When headphones are plugged in the speakers are muted.

Satellite Speaker

Satellite Speaker: The included second speaker completes a two channel stereo system. The satellite speaker is connected to the main radio using the attached 20" cable which terminates with a male RCA plug. A 10' RCA extension is also included to offer greater placement flexibility and improve stereo separation.
