This is the third great deal on a DAB radio I've seen since the leak about the BBC closing 6Music & Asian Network - maybe retailers are panicking and getting rid of stock before DAB dies completely?

:roll:

Or maybe they're just clearing slow moving stocks - bit like most of the deals on here.

Hot - good value. Does not say on the website what type of battery it uses or whether it can be mains powered
#6
I wonder who manufactures this unit for M&S? Anyone know? I am a bit dubious about touch pad interfaces too. It doesn't work that well on higher end products like the Evoke Flow in my opinion.

I doubt it will die completely, but when DAB+ arrives, and the existing DAB signal is switched off, the only present DAB radios that will work will be the ones that are upgradeable to DAB+.

I have had this for about 5+ years Pure DMX-50 DAB/CD/MP3/SD/USB Micro System so does that mean once the DAB+ comes in that mine will be completely obsolete:w00t:, somehow i cannot believe that, must be able to upgrade this to dab+:thinking: Anyone!!!!
#12
Unlikely,

DAB+ will supercede. It is like the Freeview and HD freeview. The older technology cannot recieve teh new technology. Look at the farse of Television. There are large parts of the country where channel 5 is better known as fuzzy Five. This used to be picked up on Freeview to get a crystal clear signal, but as of the last digital tuning, No more freeeview 5 ,just old Fuzzy Five and when analogue is turned off, They probably won't have got Freeview 5 back on line. The powers that be don't care if peolpe get a sub optimal service as long as the majority do.:?

DAB+ Upgrade: Paul Stoneman says "The DAB news in show 24 made me think, would it be possible to upgrade to DAB+? I have a Pure DMX-50 which has the ability to upgrade its firmware. Is it just a case of firmware upgrade or does DAB Plus need new components?

Sadly, it's all to do with the receiver module that decodes the DAB signal. For radios without a DAB+ module (including the DMX-50), it's not a software fix, although manufactures such as Pure may offer a "return to factory" module replacement - we'll have to wait and see.

I'm in the same boat with some early DAB stuff that's going to be completely useless when the switch to DAB+ takes place. Infuriating, and not at all widely known - yet. Retailers will tell you about it if you push them, but otherwise they keep very quiet about it.

The simple answer is to make sure you buy a set that's upgradeable (there are several about). If you buy one that isn't, it will be useless within a fairly short time.

This might help:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/2010/jan/13/uk-dab-radio-epg-guide

Includes the following paragraph:

For consumers, it provides an essential warning: don't buy a DAB radio that does not support WorldDMB Profile 1 and that therefore cannot handle DAB+. There are no DAB+ broadcasts in the UK at the moment, but it's likely there will be. DAB+ uses a much more efficient audio codec, and can provide more stations with better sound quality than DAB.

Good deal but i'll stick with fm radio - better sound quality for a start !!

I think it is pretty much dead already, got a DAB radio in my car and there are barely any stations worth listening to that you can't receive on FM now.

See above - all DAB radios are going to be dead before long unless they're DAB+ upgradeable! ;-)

There is no date set for use of DAB+ in the UK, if it ever happens. 2015 would be the earliest, if at all.

Not exactly a deal beaker on a 30 quid radio.

I too have a Pure DMX-50 ( with the free SW upgrade to give it DMX-60 functionality) If DAB+ does happen then the CD / MP3 player will still work, as will the WiFi radio I've got plugged in to the AUX1 input. I suppose if I wanted I could plug a DAB+ radio into the AUX2 input then everyone would be happy. :thumbsup:

It's nothing whatever to do with scaremongering - just being aware. What's your problem with that?

Why buy a DAB radio that could well be useless in a few years time, when you can just as easily buy one that's upgradeable and won't be?

Ah, this is all so much like the PS3/360 debate in the Heavy Rain thread...

Because it's 30 quid, and will be usable to 2015 at least?

How much is a cheap DAB+ radio?

edit: Answering my own question, about 50 quid, quite a bit more expensive.

which is dumb and kill it completely....look at the low take up blu ray because of a poorly thought out format...all old players are near obsolete not long after being removed from the box

although 2015 is the target, i think is woefully unrealistic...only 12-13% of population have a DAB set, even less have DAB car radios...and the DAB target for switch off is 90% of the population can access DAB by 2015...lol, no chance!!
