The reasons in favour of DAB are: clear, reasonable sound quality, free of interference. Many more stations than FM including local stations. no knob twiddling to find precise frequencies. Station information. No need to find space for a TV + Freeview/SKY box in the kitchen, bedroom etc. The decent sets have very good reception. Some have inbuilt recording and live pause functions. There are now clock radios with DAB receivers built in. What DAB is not is a 'HiFi' source, get your vinyl or cd out for that, besides who needs to listen to gardners question time' in superperfect 'HiFi' sound. So don't be put off by all the comments about poor sound quality, it's great for most things that you would use a radio for. Like any other electronics based medium, some of the DAB receivers are great, others are rubbish. Don't be put off when it is quite obviously a lousy DAB set that has negatively clouded a users opinion of DAB. As a service to prospective purchasers, it would be great if users could write mini reviews of their receivers below. Please don't clog the thread up with 'Don't get DAB because the sound quality is poor' type posts. n.b. I don't have anything to do with the DAB industry.
