Antennas Direct Micron XG - Side View

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 01, 2011

Antennas Direct has launched its newest innovation in DTV antenna technology by introducing two models to its best selling ClearStream Micron Antennas Series. Adding the features of a signal magnifying reflector and a low-noise amplifier to the ClearStream Micron’s award winning element design, the series now includes the ClearStream Micron R and ClearStream Micron XG.

With millions of over-the-air viewers in urban landscapes, Antennas Direct developed the reflector and low-noise amplifier to improve signal reliability in areas affected by tall buildings and other unique obstructions. The ClearStream Micron R with reflector gathers incoming signals and focuses them precisely on the driven element, doubling the power of the antenna. The ClearStream Micron XG incorporates both the new reflector and a low-noise amplifier, enhancing the signal up to 20 dB with a range of up to 35 miles.

“With young cord cutters, we knew that one of our biggest growth segments was in urban areas,” said Richard Schneider, president of Antennas Direct. “Nearly 70 percent of antenna reliant homes use an indoor antenna. People want a sleek, high-performance antenna, capable of HDTV reception, with the reliability of an outdoor design. The new Micron Series will fill that need as the most reliable, compact indoor TV antennas on the market.”

The ClearStream Micron XG is available online at http://www.antennasdirect.com and http://www.bestbuy.com. The ClearStream Micron R will be available in September online and through select home electronics dealers.
