Digital Radio

DAB stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting, DAB radio is broadcasted via transmitters and offers listeners digital sound quality, more choice of stations and allows for broadcast information to be displayed.

One of the biggest benefits of DAB radio is that because of the way digital broadcasting works listeners’ have access to far more stations than what is available on analogue radio. Providing digital reception is good, listeners’ in the UK are able to receive between 30 and 50 DAB stations with their digital radio.

This digital station availability is due to improve even more with the proposed launch of DAB+ or D2 as its being called in the UK. The launch of D2 in the UK will mean that even more digital stations are available to UK listeners providing they have a DAB+ compatible digital radio. All Ruark Audio products contain DAB+ tuners so once the launch of D2 in the UK occurs our products will have no problems picking up these extra digital stations.

DAB radios are far easier to operate that conventional analogue radios. DAB radios allow users to tune to their desired station with the touch of a button rather than having to fine tune to the station, this a requirement of analogue radios. DAB radios allow listeners’ to simply scroll through the list of available digital stations and then select the station, it really is as simple as that.

Digital radio signal is constantly improving and with the launch of D2 digital radio is set to offers listeners’ even more listening options in the future. Couple that with ease of use and digital sound quality there has never been a better time to upgrade to a DAB radio.
