RDS - Radio Data Systems. The hardware used by both hi-fi and in-car radio tuners to decode additional information transmitted alongside normal radio broadcasts. This information commonly includes the station name and can automatically retune to stronger station signals. The tuner will also search all available RDS encoded stations for traffic and news information and interrupt the station/tape/CD that you are currently listening to and retune so you can hear the bulletin.  
RECEIVER - A Receiver is a component containing an amplifier and a radio tuner.
