Get rid of the popping, hissing, and interference in your daily commute, and switch to digital radio broadcasts with Kenwood's KTC-HR200 HD Radio™ tuner. The tuner works with all 2003-up satellite radio-ready Kenwood receivers with CD changer controls, along with 2008-up audio/video receivers with Kenwood's KAB data bus system.

Once you connect the KTC-HR200, you'll still receive current analog radio signals, but tune to an HD Radio station and the tuner will switch automatically to the digital signal. You'll hear FM stations that approach CDs in sound quality, along with AM stations that sound as good as today's analog FM.

HD Radio™ technology allows a station to create up to three separate channels on its assigned frequency. The KTC-HR200 will receive these additional channels, so you'll enjoy a wider selection of entertainment and information provided by your favorite radio stations. And when you tune to any HD Radio or Radio Data System (RDS) station, you'll see song, title, and artist details, along with other text information, on your Kenwood stereo's display.

Important Note: The KTC-HR200 does not have a pass-through connection. Call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 if you want to connect this tuner and another Kenwood component to your Kenwood car stereo.

Features

HD Radio: HD Radio technology, where available, offers higher quality sound than conventional analog broadcasts and receives text data. HD Radio provides FM broadcasts that are equal to CD sound quality and AM broadcasts that are as good as analog FM stereo broadcasts. HD Radio also provides a variety of data, including station name, song title, artist name, album name, etc.
