What is new about digital DAB+ radios?
DAB+ is a digital radio broadcasting standard and the natural evolution for FM radio, as it works in a similar way but using a digital technology. This translates into a higher quality signal reaching places that were previously impossible.
DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) is a new form of radio broadcasting over a network of terrestrial transmitters in addition to analogue FM broadcasting. It offers the listener more options and information with clear, quality sound. The technology allows the receiver to maintain the best signal it can find. With digital DAB stations, no frequencies are recorded; tuning is done by station name, so you don't have to re-tune when you change your location.
Main benefits of DAB radio for the users
- It provides high quality reception of sound signals, equivalent to that of a CD
- The system is more robust than the airborne transmission system
- There are no interferences, it solves all problems of distortion and cancellations affecting FM signals in mobile phones and vehicles in motion
- Greater flexibility and variety in the information received. Besides audio, text and multimedia can be transmitted
What should you look for when buying a digital radio?
If you want to take full advantage of this relatively 'new' standard, your digital radio or DAB should have at least the following features.
Fixed or portable DAB radio?
The main point about a portable radio is that it can be carried from one place to another in a comfortable, safe and simple way, to prevent the equipment from being damaged while travelling. For this reason, it should have a solid base that allows it to be placed on different surfaces.
Some portable digital radios are equipped with handles that are incorporated in a modern design, making them easy to carry without the risk of them slipping off your hands. Therefore, consider those models that provide the conditions to be transported in the most comfortable way possible because otherwise, the use of the device will be quite limited.
The vast majority of portable digital radios use disposable lithium batteries of different voltages for operation; others are equipped with a dual option, as they can be connected to the power source and charged with alternating current to have an independent power supply for a certain period of time or be kept directly on batteries.
To save costs, look for batteries that are included or have a dual power supply. If you don't have a wall connector, the advice is to choose devices that need fewer batteries for their operation, with the same power, quality and audio clarity.
