Video: Alpine's Smart HD Radio™ Reception

I've been a camera nut all my life, so it makes sense I'd end up being a video producer. Of course, it has been a roundabout journey for me, as I started at Crutchfield in 2007 writing about car audio gear. Over the years I've learned about all the electronic items we sell, and it is my job to make sure we are making videos that you will find useful, whether you're shopping for something specific or trying to install some new gear yourself. My job is a lot of fun because I get to play around with all the cool stuff you see on our website while I'm making videos about it. Getting hands-on with the gear helps me see what I should show you about a product, though the flip side is my personal wish list is a mile long...

Alpine's HD Radio™ receivers feature a smart tuner that keeps you tuned in to secondary channels even if you're at the edge of reception and lose the digital signal briefly. On most other stereos, the secondary channels just drop out momentarily as the signal comes and goes. The main channel automatically switches between digital and analog as needed.
