Avion DRM Receiver available NOW!

20150810 18:00UTC UPDATE: Now showing as unavailable...

 The Avion AV-DR-1401 DRM reciever is available now on Amazon in India. Price comes in at 15,000 Rupees (I think), which is a scale-tipping $235 USD! Is that right? Specs say:

  • India's 1st Digital Radio DRM receiver AV-DR-1401
  • supprts xHE-AAC code, DRM text messages, Scrolling messages, Service mode , AFS (Alternate Frequency Switching)
  • 10 hour power back on single charge, 3.7V @6000mAh Li-Pol battery (Lead Free)
  • 3.5" TFT LCD capable of rendering more than 1,000,000 colors, DRM Emergency Warning alerts ( even if the radio is OFF) 
  • Digital Audio output, Journaline data, Program recording , EPG (Electronic Program Guide),MOT Slide show
Let's all hope performance meets expectations. I for one am looking for good news about this receiver. India is ready AND it has been a long time coming. I'll gladly review this unit, if I can get my paws on one. Thanks to my anonymous source for the tip!
