    Has anyone tried this Digital Audio Broadcast receiver. I saw one at Dixsons but it was just an empty box sitting on top of a PC. There are apparently 35 DAB stations already active. Many of them with no commertials at all, just music.

    More info on www.wavefinder.com

    In a word:

    NOOOOOOOO!

    it's £300 isn't it? and you still need a pc, and it's not going to sound anywhere near as good as a hifi seperates one (which costs the same)

    DAB is supposed to be great, but get the Videologic DRX-601E (£300) if you already have a radio, or the Sony STD-777ES DAB Tuner (£499) wjich has FM/AM/LW as well. Both from www.hifibitz.co.uk ot do a 'tuner' search on uk.kelkoo.com

    See the tuner test in the current what-hifi? I remember seeing the Psion thing being absolutely slated - I will have a look later.

    amazingly enough there was something useful on the what-hifi? site!!
