iLuv HD Radios

iLuv today branched out of its comfortable field of iPod-focused stereos with its first HD Radio-capable systems. The i169 represents the flagship and includes both a top-mounted iPod dock as well as the newer digital radio feature, which improves on the quality of AM and FM stations, adds multiple stations to the same frequency, and allows for basic data such as weather. The i169 also serves as a dual alarm clock and will wake up either to an attached iPod, a radio station, or a simple buzzer. An aux-in jack for non-iPod devices will also be standard when iLuv ships the radio at the start of May for $170.

The more essential i168 focuses chiefl on HD Radio and sheds the iPod feature while preserving the dual alarms, wake features, and aux-in connector to play from other devices. The reduced feature set helps iLuv reduce the price of the radio to $90; the company claims the i168 should already be available in stores.
