What is HD Radio®?
HD Radio® is a Digital technology that allows a radio broadcaster to digitally transmit additional data in the same radio wave enabling higher quality sound and the ability to transfer additional content and information. HD Radio® technology makes AM stations have FM-like sound quality, while FM stations can be heard with CD-like sound quality. Unlike typical FM or AM transmission however, HD Radio® has crystal clear reception with low noise and no audio distortion. The best part is that HD Radio is FREE OF CHARGE to you - all you need is a new receiver to experience this new and exciting radio content!
Multicasting - more content and more listening options!
Multicasting allows you to access additional channels on HD radio on any JVC HD Radio receiver. These "stations in between the stations" contain exciting new programming that can't be found on your typical radio stations such as: new radio formats, additional music content, new music genre and talk radio formats, and even experimental content that, until now, have not been heard through other radio broadcast mediums.
iTunes® tagging lets you tag songs that you're listening to on HD Radio so they can be purchased
later from the iTunes® store. When you hear a song you like, all you need to do is hit the TAG button on the
JVC Receiver featuring iTunes tagging, and the Song and Artist information for that track is stored in the receiver. Up to 60 entries can be stored and will automatically transfer to your iPod® or iPhone® once it is plugged into the front USB port. The
next time that your iPod® or iPhone is Synced with iTunes®, your tagged songs will appear in a special "Tagged" playlist. All tagged
songs in the playlist are now available to be previewed or purchased from the iTunes® store!
