DAB

No more hiss and crackle on your radio

A close of of a DAB Radio in a Volkswagen

DAB is the new way to receive radio - in the clearest possible sound.

DAB stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting. Opt for the DAB digital radio receiver - available as an upgrade for your RCD310 or RCD 510 touch-screen radio system - and you'll have the pleasure of tuning in to every available digital station.

Much wider listening choice

With digital radio, you can get all the digital stations bringing you extra news, sport, music, comedy, drama, children's programmes and more*. There's such a wide selection you'll find plenty to suit your own particular interests. And you can also listen to your existing favourites, hiss and crackle-free, in crystal clear digital sound quality. BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 live, the World Service and most BBC local radio stations, for example, are available on DAB.

Just use station names

With DAB you don't have to remember frequencies, you can just use the radio station names. All DAB radios have an LCD display, which shows the station you're listening to. Many stations also use this display to transmit other information, such as artist and song, what's coming up next, news headlines, etc.

* It's advisable to check the DAB digital signal coverage in your postcode area
