    I haven't seen any but one should be along shortly. Only current way I know of is via Tag McLaren (maybe Arcam do one too) but only at multiples of your budget.

    There isn’t one I have seen, it was originally reported the Sony 795 was going to have DAB by What Hi-Fi but it proved false the following month, I would have had one myself but went with the Denon 1905.

    I found with the DAB radio it can be quite fussy with reception and if you do not have a good quality signal it tends to drop out quite alot & then you will need a bigger arial which usually will have to be mounted outside!

    Well, guess what ? There is an all-in-one A/V system for under £400 with DAB, it's a Samsung HT-DB770: no standalone reciever as yet though.

    HTH,
