Satellite radio goes high-end: Beginning early next year, Krell Industries
will enter the booming market for satellite radio receivers with an XM Radio tuner. The $4000 unit will reportedly also receive traditional AM and FM broadcasts; an optional module will let it stream Internet audio via 802.11g wireless connection to a broadband modem, according to the September 27 edition of This Week in Consumer Electronics
). The tuner will join Krell's line of custom installation products. In a similar but less expensive vein will be new Sirius tuners from Russound
. At $699 and $999, the two new models will also include AM/FM tuners.
