Sony have recently brought out a new personal DAB radio. I am sure you will find it if you visit the Sony website.

It's worth remembering that DAB isn't as good as it's hyped up to be as many of the stations are heavily compressed - some are even in mono..:-)

There are many others.

On the other hand both my Freeview set top box and PCI TV card deliver first class digital radio coverage for the stations which are carried...:-)

Check your post code for availability of stations.

It took three years before I could use my unit properly as only four ensembles were available.
