HD Radio with Smart Reception Control
Alpine does HD Radio. Get all the music and programming you want to hear in a crystal-clear digital format. FM stations with CD-quality sound and AM stations with FM-quality sound, both with virtually no distortion. Extend your music choice further with multi-casting capability HD1, HD2, and HD3 and you'll hear more talk and music content from the stations you already receive. Alpine’s exclusive Smart Reception Management keeps you tuned in to your favorite HD digital sub-channels, even when you’re in an area with limited digital reception.
Smart Reception Management: A Better Way to Listen to HD Radio
Traditional HD Radio equipped tuners will use an auto-switching method when listening to the main & multi-casting channels. It works really well on the main channels, however when listening to a sub-channel, you will be switched back to the main channel if the digital signal is temporarily lost. This interruption can be a frustrating experience to stay engaged on a particular multi-casting channel if the digital signal is weak. Alpine’s solution provides Smart Reception Control through the default setting “Digital MC”. The Digital MC setting uses a Hybrid method of auto-switching analog and digital on the main channel, and uses all-digital for sub-channels. Alpine’s solution keeps you on the channel you desire, resulting in a better overall HD Radio experience.
