Last week, ELAN Home Systems announced it began shipping its new Digital Tuner, the DT22 Dual AM/FM, SIRIUS XM Radio Ready Tuner. The brushed-aluminum front panel (part of ELAN’s new look) includes an indigo display panel and streams four unique audio outputs.
In weeding through the adjective-filled product release, we attempted to filter out the true specs and we think we’ve got some of them. The DT22 is what ELAN calls a “plug-and-play satellite receiver” with the capability of added signal stability in the native AM and FM bands for advanced signal locking and lower noise levels. They spec a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response at an 80dB Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) on satellite audio reception, with up to 300Hz to 15kHz at 63dB SNR for local terrestrial broadcasts. In addition, you can Link 2 DT22s to provide up to eight tuners (4 AM/FM, 4 Sirius).
The 17 x 3.5 x 14 inch DT22 is an eloquent addition to any component stack or equipment rack with included mounting ears, and is now shipping at an MSRP of $1,200. ELAN will offer the combo tuner with a single SIRIUS / AM/FM configuration as the DT11 this March at an MSRP of $800, and will continue to ship its popular DTNR AM/FM tuner listed at $640.
