CEDIA EXPO, Indianapolis, Sept. 9, 2005 — Boston Acoustics, Inc., a premier manufacturer of high-performance audio solutions for use in home music and audio/video systems, aftermarket and OEM automotive systems, and custom built-in audio systems, launches the highly anticipated Recepter Radio™ HD with digital HD Radio™ technology by iBiquity Digital at the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo 2005, beginning here today.

Shipping this month, the Recepter Radio HD is one of the first HD home radios to become available, and to receive and seamlessly play the additional digital, or Multicast, channels many stations will also be broadcasting. It is a compact, high-performance, digital AM/FM table model that delivers brilliant clarity, and high-fidelity sound comparable to the finest radios ever made. A compact satellite speaker, allowing listeners to enjoy the Recepter Radio HD in true stereo, is included in the package, along with a credit-card size remote control for extra convenience and ease of use.

Broadening Boston Acoustics enormously popular Recepter Radio family, the Recepter Radio HD features the dynamic, FCC-approved HD Radio technology developed by iBiquity Digital Corp., and brings The Boston Sound™, long acclaimed for its accuracy, to a new audience of consumers.

The Promise of HD Radio and…
With new radio stations converting to digital every day, and more multicast channels becoming available, the Recepter Radio HD brings home the bright promise of HD Radio technology — making it widely accessible, and as easy to use as the best conventional radios.

HD Radio technology radically upgrades sound quality and provides new wireless data services, while allowing digital broadcasts to be transmitted over existing AM/FM radio bands. Owners of the Recepter Radio HD will enjoy CD-quality audio and the elimination of static, hiss, pops and fades. They will be able to take advantage of a boundless array of new entertainment and information possibilities, including special program content such as station call letters, song titles, artist names and additional text — even RBDS station information for non-HD broadcasts. A seamless conversion process lets broadcasters maintain the current dial positions of existing stations.

Listeners further benefit by the growing support of the nation’s major AM and FM broadcasters, which have reasserted their commitment to digital broadcasting. Stations across the U.S. are already broadcasting with HD Radio technology, and aggressive plans are underway to convert most major market stations over the next few years. Consumers with HD Radio receivers will be able to hear many of their favorite AM and FM stations in unparalleled digital clarity. And FREE, with no additional or recurring subscription costs.

…The Power of Recepter Radio HD
In addition to HD Radio technology, the Recepter Radio HD includes a second satellite speaker for superior stereo separation, and a handy remote. The system delivers wide dynamics and impressive tonal range, for the highest highs and lowest lows, assisted by patented BassTrac circuitry for bass performance out of proportion to its remarkably compact size.

A stereo input accepts iPods, MP3 players and other external audio sources, and the radio’s stereo headphone output doubles as a high-quality line output, allowing it to serve any component audio system as an HD Radio source.

A high-quality tuner locks in on closely spaced stations, and a generous multi-line display shows song titles, artist names, station names, and other broadcast data. The Recepter Radio HD includes memory tuning for up to 20 AM/FM presets in any order desired, and incorporates two independent clock alarms that can be set for waking up to music, a buzzer, or both. Snooze and Sleep functions are also provided, as is a battery backup that retains presets and time settings, even during a power outage.

Of course, listeners also benefit from The Boston Sound, an acclaimed feature of all Boston Acoustics speaker systems. The Boston Sound reproduces music and movie sound with exceptional accuracy, delivering the music and sound effects that artists intend with a pure neutral tonal consistency that remains the same for all Boston Acoustics speakers, including the Recepter Radio HD.

The Recepter Radio HD will be available this month from authorized Boston Acoustics dealers at a suggested price of $499. It can be seen with Boston Acoustics other outstanding products in Booth 727, Indiana Convention Center, during CEDIA EXPO.
