I had a DAB radio in my previous car for 3 years, really enjoyed it and was permanently tuned into 6 music. Was gutted when I couldn't get a DAB option with my new Civic ES - was even more gutted when I heard the quality of the bundled radio. So, have been looking for an affordable way to get DAB in the car for some time.
Bought one the other day. Have only played around with it a little so far, but seems to do the job. Haven't bothered setting up properly yet, but even when connecting everything up and just dumping it in the glovebox, the quality's been better than many FM radio stations. Have only driven around a small area in Fife (north of Edinburgh), but great to be able to have access to some decent radio stations again. Hope to spend some time this week-end working out how to get the most from it and where to install it. I think there's a good possibility that I'll be able to affix the ariel to the front windscreen and leave the unit in the glovebox, out of sight. I even toyed with the idea of putting it in the boot, closer to the existing ariel.
