San Diego - May 28, 2007 - Sony has joined the list of consumer electronics manufacturers that produce HD Radio receivers. The company's first two offerings will be available in July 2007.

AM/FM/HD Radio table radio (model XDR-S3HD) features a back-lit blue LCD display set in a mesh-covered front panel and cabinet with cherry wood finish. The unit also includes an auxiliary input jack, 20 AM and 20 FM presets, a wireless remote control and a built-in clock with sleep timer and alarm. The expected retail price will be about $200.

The mobile HD Radio tuner (model XT-100HD) is a hideaway module that connects through the Sony head unit's bus interface. It feeds PSD information to the car stereo's display. The tuner module is expected to retail for about $100.

Both units will be available through the sonystyle.com website and at participating retailers.
