What is DAB - Digital Radio?
Simply, it's a better way of listening to radio – it brings you a new level in sound quality and whole lot of new benefits.
With DAB digital radio you can listen to national commercial stations, BBC national stations and a whole range of other local stations. Some of them are old analogue favourites, others are brand new stations created for DAB. Either way, you'll enjoy a diverse mixture of listening, including stations dedicated to classic rock, spoken word entertainment, latest chart hits, and other stations to suit your mood.
You can say goodbye to hiss and crackle, DAB digital radio brings you much less interference and a huge increase in sound quality for AM stations.
Also gone is the need to remember frequency numbers, a DAB digital radio displays the stations by name. Digital radios have screens showing you more information about what you're listening to. Whether you're looking for the title and artist of the song, the news headlines, or the latest sports results, check the screen to see if it's there.
