The CR-H238i is a stereo receiver also referred to as a micro system that is part of Teac's Reference series and set for a fourth quarter 2010 release. Like the CR-H500NT it is an all in one unit with built in CD player, AM/FM tuner, USB port and iPod connectivity, although much cheaper since it does not have the wifi/ethernet, phono input or iPod Digital Direct USB port. It does however have an SD card slot conveniently located on the front along with the USB port, both of which may be used to play music in MP3 or WMA format. On the rear panel can be found the iPod port, along with two stereo pairs of auxiliary inputs and one pair of outputs all on RCA connectors. Digital audio output is provided by the optical out, allowing you to bypass the analog RCA outputs, and video through is possible when streaming from an iPod and using the optional Teac DS-20 iPod dock as it has both Video and S-Video outputs. Since this is a newly released product at the time of writing, information is not yet available regarding the use of a USB stick for recording like the tuner mentioned above, although the specs do indicate audio encoding when using the USB port.
