DAB Car Radio

February 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

If you enjoy listening to the car radio, then there are some things you need to know about the digital changes that will affect radio in the same way that they have the TV. Since 2009 the TV analogue signal has begun switching off in favour of digital and radio will be no different.

It is expected that by 2015, radio stations will have gone digital too and so there are some adjustments you will need to make in order to enjoy radio in your car but the rewards will be great.

You can look forward to more features on your radio. For example, due to the information that can be sent digitally, you will see a display of facts about what you're hearing, like the artist or song title.

The sound quality received through a digital radio is a lot better than FM broadcasting. There will be no more drops in signal or "white noise" interference. You will just get pure clarity.

You will be offered a greater choice of radio stations as more broadcasters are transmitting in digital. This will make any journey seem refreshed as there is plenty of choice to keep you entertained.

If you are wondering how to make the changes to receive this much improved radio service, then you have a couple of options really. Whichever way you go though, you will need a good quality aerial on your car, so you can receive a continuous signal from different places in the country. A bad aerial will mean a bad service, even if your radio itself is state of the art.

As far as the DAB radios themselves are concerned, you could just fit a brand new digital radio in place of your old analogue one and you're off. Don't forget you still need a new aerial!

Alternatively you could have an extra DAB box fitted alongside your old radio. This will require extra wiring in and this could prove costly. The easiest method is to get an external box, about the size of a sat nav system. This is then mounted on the dashboard and plugs into your cigarette lighter socket. Your existing radio then picks up then frequency emitted by the DAB Radio box. Again you will still need a new aerial fitted.

As the switch over date approaches more and more manufacturers will produce solutions for the upgrade and the quality of products is set to only increase.
