News: SPY PICS - AVR6.1 Receiver from ORION?
- Friday 25th March, 2011
We received this morning what could certainly be true spy pics of an upcoming release from Orion Car Audio. Details remain sketchy at the moment and Australian distributor for Orion, Directed Electronics Australia have not confirmed the release date or pricing as yet (they were also interested in where we obtained the photos, but of course we can’t reveal our source).
From the photos we can tell that it appears to include Digital Radio (DAB+), run on the Windows CE platform, includes Bluetooth and GPS Navigation (NAVTEQ).
What is interesting is this would be the first venture into head units, given Orion has only ever produced amp, speakers and subs previously. We have asked for an official press release and will publish more details once known.
Our source also revealed there are 1,500 units, which to us means this is possibly not just a prototype and that the release is imminent.
We’re looking forward to the release of what could be the most feature packed double din receiver on the market at the moment?
