A new HD Radio monitor receiver is shipping.
Inovonics said it received its certification from iBiquity Digital Radio for the INOmini 632 HD Radio Monitor Receiver, and it is now filling its backorders.
The $850 box is described as a professional-grade FM and FM/HD-Radio receiver for off-air monitoring at stations multicasting FM and HD Radio aux channels 1–8. Analog FM and HD Radio digital programs are accompanied by digitized text and “housekeeping” data. FM RDS and HD Radio PAD are shown on the front LCD display, along with readouts of signal quality information.
A notable feature is “no-blend.” If the HD Radio signal is lost, the receiver will not revert back to analog FM mode.
