Are any receivers in 2007 going to have HD Radio

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I know one of Yamaha receivers has a HD Radio receiver - does anyone know if any other manufacturer plans to add this technology to their receivers in 2007?

Thanks,
Nicholas.

I heard about the Yamaha as well, and I have heard that they pulled it off the market.

The only bit I have herd is Denon. It looks like they may be the next, but from my understanding they have not even finished negotiations with iBiquity, but I don't know everything.

The Yamaha is available http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/p...2&CTID=5000300

but I would prefer a Denon. Do you have any more info on them?

No, can't say that I do. I will ask my friends from iBiquity and see what I can get from them. The real problem is that too many people are taking a wait and see approach so I doubt that you will see much in the way of Receivers with built in HD for another year at least.

But by then we will have released our 2nd generation HD Radio Tuner.

I would be really interested if you can find out anything.

By the way does anyone make stand-alone HD radios with digital outs that I could connect to a receiver? And that don't cost a fortune (i.e. <$300).

Thanks,
Nicholas

No, not yet.

As Master Thesus pointed out, the second generation of their component tuner should have a digital output.

I'm new to the HD Radio forum, who are "they"?

A CD player snatches the digital information off the disk, renders it into an analog signal and sends that to the amplifier. An HD tuner snatches the digital info out of the air, renders it into analog and sends that to the amp.

So if the HD tuner only sends the digital signal out somewhere, what do you use to render the signal into analog? An AV receiver? Will that receiver be better at the rendering? Or will it have better analog circuitry than the tuner? And do you then take the analog signal out of the AV receiver to send it to your amp if your amp is better than the receiver?

Sorry if my questions are a little primitive, but I'm new here.

That is an unknown, it depends on which device has the better D/A convertor!! (and potentially a few other factors)

The top-of-the-line Onkyo/Integra/Integra Research card-based product has an HD/XM radio card available.

It's a shame that a new $150 headunit for a car and can support HD radio, but yet a new $2k A/V receiver for a HTS won't.

The new Onkyo TX-NR905 AVR, Integra DTR-8.8 AVR and Integra DTC-9.8 prepro all have integral HD tuners with XM and Sirius support as well. In fact, you can listen to all three at once in different zones!

I wonder, eqcarter, when under the influence of illegal substances, could you "listen to all three at once" in the SAME zone?

Pretty nice, but all of those receivers cost well above $1k, right? I'll have to find an add-on HD tuner since I already ordered the Onkyo 605 receiver and don't have it in the budget to get the 905 when it's released.

The Integra TUN-3.7 tuner accepts the cards from the card-based receiver line (DTR-10.5, TX-NR1000 and RDC-7.1).

The C-HDXM card has been discontinued (all gone)...that has AM/FM/HD/RDS/XM capability.

In August, the new C-HDSAT card ships. That features AM/FM/HD/RDS/XM/Sirius. The tuner is designed for custom installation, as are all Integra products.

It has an aluminum front panel, infra-red remote, 3 IR code sets for multiple tuners, bi-directional RS-232 port, 12V trigger I/O and is rack-mountable. 40 tuner presets, auto scan, direct tuning...

The Onkyo-branded flavor of that Integra TUN-3.7 standalone tuner ships in the U.S. in July. It's the T-4555. I'm not certain which tuner card comes standard (maybe the new CHDSAT?). It has an SRP of $599, MAP of $499.

I was doing a search for the new C-HDSAT card (since I couldn't find any mention of it on onkyo's site), and up popped up a listing for it on the onkyopro (Onkyo Professional). (This site won't let me enter the link, but just click on tuners on the onkyopro site.) Does Onkyo think that NR1000 owners are less interested in new cards than Onkyo T-4555P Tuner owners? This tuner isn't even listed on onkyo's site. I just thought this was a little odd, since I know that on this forum, at least, there seems to be considerable interest in these cards...

Don't know if I missed it earlier, or what, but now I see the T-4555P tuner on Onkyo's site. The new cards mentioned earlier are also shown here. Maybe the HTML coding is a little sloppy, cause the link only comes up if you put the cursor below the word "Tuners". I guess maybe Onkyo does love us, at least a little bit!

That's looks pretty neat. According to Froogle, they're selling for $500, which is the price of the price of a half-decent receiver!

Some early reviews of the new Denon xx08CI line seem to indicate that at least some of them will have HD tuners, but I'm seeing conflicting information. Does anyone have a definitive list?
