If you accept an earlier DAB radio, you won’t accept DAB stations, but some stations ability address in both DAB and DAB format.

For the nerds, the aberration amid DAB and DAB is, in short, that DAB was MP2 encoded and DAB is AAC encoded, acceptation DAB is about three times added able now.

If you appetite to accept agenda radio, you charge a DAB accordant receiver. This will be either accepted or a amount advantage on new cars – some cars ability not action it at all – so ask at the dealership. Alternatively, an aftermarket headunit or standalone receiver that can be acquainted into the aux ascribe can be acclimated on earlier cars.

Because DAB stations beneath $.25 of spectrum than a acceptable AM/FM radio station, there can be added stations. And the DAB advertisement can address abundant added information.

Updates such as the current, abutting and antecedent clue and artist, cartage and account can all be supplied from the broadcaster. Audio additionally sounds clearer and hiss free, acknowledgment to technology that cancels out changeless and noise. This agency college affection complete than AM, and the aforementioned or bigger than FM. But not always…

If the complete stops suddenly, alike if it was bright clear, that’s because you’ve begin a blackspot for transmission.
