All-New HD Radio Offerings will launch in August 2008

Coby(R) Electronics is introducing an all-new range of receivers that will help put the power of HD Radio(TM) broadcasting into the hands of consumers nationwide. The innovative, value-priced products will give users effortless access to hundreds of new HD2 and HD3 channels and 1,700 crystal-clear AM and FM HD Radio stations -- all subscription free -- at home, in the office, backyard or anywhere they want to be. Coby's new line-up, including the HDR- 700 Portable HD Radio System and HDR-650 Component HD Radio Receiver, makes its retail debut in August 2008.

"Our new receivers are the perfect way for consumers to get in on the HD Radio experience," said Mark Farish, Head of Marketing for Coby Electronics. "We're excited to be among the very first manufacturers to enter into this fast-growing CE category and to introduce our signature feature-loaded products designed to help consumers capture the remarkable sound quality and rich reception of HD Radio technology at the most affordable possible price points."

Offering up huge sound from its compact design, this take-it- on-the-go system allows users to tune in to static-free digital broadcasts whenever and wherever they wish. With splash-proof housing and an integrated rechargeable battery, the HDR-700 can serve as the sole entertainment system -- indoors and out! The small-scale unit also features an SD card slot for digital MP3 playback. SRP $149.

And the company's HDR-650 Component HD Radio Receiver, the most affordable HD Radio receiver on the market, is a sleek capsule-like unit with a brushed- aluminum casing designed to complement existing stereo and audio systems. The HDR-650 features a high-contrast digital LCD screen that displays station, artist and song title information. With a built-in alarm and sleep timer function, the HDR-650 is a diminutive receiver that offers high functionality at a low price. SRP $99.

Coby remains "in tune" with today's most popular CE categories, developing fresh products that meet the demands and enhance the lifestyles of a wide range of consumers.
