Sangean Cancels Production Plans for DT600-HD

Would have been an HD Radio portable that also included analog AM

Sangean now says it’s not planning to introduce an HD Radio portable that was to have included analog AM in the U.S. this year.

Responding to a question from Radio World, a Sangean spokesman said the company decided not to go ahead with production of the DT-600 HD; he could not say why. The spokesman also said Amazon is not accepting pre-orders for the unit, as we had reported. Sangean had not answered Radio World’s query at the time that story was published.

IBiquity had a prototype of the unit in its booth at CES and also at the spring NAB Show. The multicast-capable unit was to support program-associated data services and feature iTunes tagging via a USB port.
