DAB Radio for my car
The future of radio is DAB! Digital Audio Broadcasting.
Dab radio now accounts for over 70 percent of all radio listened to in the UK. It could hit over 95 percent by 2020.
If you are after a DAB radio for your car the choice is clear and the quality of the reception has also vastly improved. There are local, regional and national stations on DAB digital broadcast, and more than 98% of the population is covered by the DAB network. In-car DAB radio is the future of radio listening in your car.
It's not just more of the stations; there are new, boutique stations on DAB with programmes designed for a diverse listening population. So, rather than trying to be all things to all people, in-car DAB means you can have stations dedicated entirely to dance, hip-hop, garage, rock, jazz, big band, country, pop, soul and disco. Or your can get stations specifically for young children, the mature listener, ethnic communities, news junkies, sports fans, lovers of the spoken word, world music and environmentalists, classical buffs, ...in other words, something for everyone.
There are several car audio suppliers currently offering Dab radio for your car.
You can have a universal DAB tuner for your car that will utilise the aux input or FM tuner. This option will allow you to keep your factory stereo.
Another option would be to have a single din stereo that has an analogue tuner and a DAB tuner. The advantage of this is that you get a much better audio output from an aftermarket stereo.
Finally if the vehicle can accommodate a double din stereo then you could have an all in one DAB tuner, Sat Nav, bluetooth, dvd multimedia stereo.
