    There used to be but no-one bought it so it was dropped from the range. That and that fact that DAB sounds rubish anyway meant it wasn't a high fidelity enough source warranting an FMJ product.

    The FMJ DAB tuner was based on the hardware of the Alpha 10 DRT. This is now an old design. The DIVA DAB Tuner (DT81?) is a newer generation tuner and has much better facilities. Unless you want an ideal cosmetic match I would go for the DIVA tuner. You may be able to find the FMJ tuner second hand somewhere.
