Dab Radio - Who's being had?

  wee eddie 20:00 26 Sep 2004

I borrowed a friends Dab Radio.

Next my cheap Sony CD/Tape/Radio it sounded dull. Clear but dull, not the range colour or timbre. I am not quite saying that you couldn't tell the difference between a violin and a viola, cos that's pushing it, but there is a definite drop in quality.

When put next to my JVC Tuner with a proper aerial, the difference was very pronounced.

As I do not have any interference on FM, I was not impressed.

I visited Currys and noticed that of the 40 or so products with Radio's or Tuners as part of them. Only 3 were Dab.

Will all these be US by 2008 or whenever the threatened switch off of FM occurs.
