The first portable HD Radio receiver has hit the market. It's from Insignia and the NS-HD01 is less than $50.

The Insignia HD Radio Portable Player allows users to listen to those extra radio stations (multicasts) that can be created by traditional FM stations using the HD Radio methodology of digital broadcasting.

Regular FM receivers can't quite pick up these precisely-defined stations but HD Radios can.

The Insignia radio/player features a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, full color LCD screen, jack output, and 10-memory preset.

The Insignia product is available at Best Buy.
