That means no more static, hiss, distortion, or signal fading.

  • Static-free, crystal-clear reception
  • No station drop-off
  • No static, hiss or audio distortion

The Power of Multicasting.
HD Radio offers multicasting, which means current FM stations provide more than one program stream on their existing frequency. **With creative new programming, you get new extra FM multicasting from HD2 and HD3 multicast channels above and beyond the main station channels, which means more music, news and sports in crystal-clear sound and commercial free. Local FM stations offer a wide variety of new formats on their HD2 channels including reggae, blues, classic jazz, future country, new alternative, deep tracks, bluegrass and local artists. More than 200 HD Radio stations across the United States offer two to three additional channels above and beyond their analog and main digital channels, with many more expected to go on the air this year. Stations are using their HD2 multicast channels to experiment with new music and news formats, showcase young artists and local bands, offer non-English language programming, and more.

*Viewing song, artist and station information may vary in different areas. Visit HD Radio for more information.

    Comments about Alpine HD Radio Tuner:

    This receiver would not power on 8 out of 10 times. Once it did power on, it would not land on any valid station. Presets with HD tuner are set by autoscan mode. Could not override them. This thing is a real piece of junk.
