Unlike the current receiver, the new $5,999 Suite 8400 and $6,000 Suite 8500 embed ADA's Control Suite multiroom-audio technology, which was available as a $2,000 outboard add-on for the 8200. The Suite 8500 adds front-panel touch screen.

iLive: The company's first iTunes-tagging tabletop HD Radio is the $149-suggested iSP809B with clock-radio functionality and Works With iPhone certification. Additional details were unavailable.

iLuv: The company's latest tabletop HD Radio, due at the end of 2008 or January, will be a step-up model replacing the current $189-suggested iPod-docking i169 with dual alarms. The new iHD171 adds iTunes tagging and Works With iPhone certification. Additional details were unavailable.
