McIntosh Laboratory recently announced the introduction of the TM2 AM/FM HD Radio˙ Tuner Module (SRP: $800), a high-performance luxury component that provides users with the finest HD Radio reception, including CD-quality FM performance, as well as leading-edge features such as RDS Data (artist, title, song) for a truly enjoyable over-the-air music experience.

Noted McIntosh President Charlie Randall: „HD Radio is one of the most exciting recent developments in broadcasting, and the trend continues to grow in popularity. In fact, according to a recent study*, awareness of HD Radio broadcasts among radio listeners topped 75% in 2007, and the universe of stations broadcasting in HD continues to expand. By introducing our TM2 AM/FM HD Radio Module, we are giving our discriminating customers the very best option for enjoying all the benefits of HD Radio and more, with the unrivalled quality assurance and performance capabilities that only McIntosh can offer.‰
 
Like all McIntosh products, the TM2 was handcrafted with pride in the United States by dedicated, highly trained craftspeople.  Offering convenient plug-and-play performance, the TM2 is designed for easy integration with McIntosh‚s recently shipped state-of-the-art MA6600 Integrated Amplifier, as well as compatibility with future products. When used in combination with the MA6600, the TM2 module enables the MA6600 to become the first stereo receiver offered by McIntosh in over 15 years.
 
The TM2 includes a host of convenience and performance features that bring radio into the 21st century and enhance the overall experience of home entertainment. For example, a Blend feature allows the user to select between Auto, Digital-only or Analog-only modes for the ultimate in flexibility. A remote, Dual-Differential AM antenna is included and provides enhanced reception together with sound quality that approaches FM.
 
Other key features of the TM2 include: multi-Casting reception; 18 station presets (9 FM, 9 AM). Users may view Signal Strength, Station, RDS and RBDS Data (artist, title, song) via the connected MA6600‚s front-panel display. In addition, the TM2 is user programmable and may be controlled via the connected MA6600‚s remote control.
