    hi

    i'm looking at buying a combined dab/ multi wave tuner to add to my av system. something along the lines of the Sony STSDB900S ( http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/2007 ).

    before running out to buy one i thourght i'd post to see if anyone owns one and can give feedback on it or, anyone can recomend a different model for around the same money.

    i'm very new to av so if no-one has the sony some info on what to look for when buying a dab would be most apreciated.

    thanks

    Before you do, answer this question. Do you have Sky or freeview TV?

    If so then you have digital radio already. At high bit rates in general than those a DAb radio will pick up.

    i have freeview. but it does not give me a few radio stations i regularly listen too on my portable. so thought as i need a tuner for my av i'd buy one complete with dab to fill this gap in my listening menu.

    thanks
