The Apogee DAB+ Digital FM Radio provides excellent reception of the DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasts) radio services available in most capital cities in Australia. The reception of digital radio signals provides several superior audio quality when compared to traditional AM/FM radio signals and the advantage of a greater number of radio stations to listen to. The Apogee DAB+ Digital FM Radio is a desktop digital radio the can be operated via the front panel or the remote control. The Apogee DAB+ Digital FM Radio has a large colour LCD display that shows the selected radio station, as well as current programming, news and weather information, if enabled by the broadcaster.
The Apogee DAB+ Digital FM Radio can accept an external antenna input for the reception of DAB+ digital radio stations, this mean listeners in areas of fringe reception can utilise a Band III VHF TV antenna to greatly extend the reception range of the receiver. We have included a coaxial adaptor to allow connection to an external TV antenna, for those who would like to attempt fringe reception. DAB+ signals utilise vertical polarisation, so a vertically polarised TV antenna will give best results.
In addition to excellent DAB+ digital radio and FM reception, the Apogee DAB+ Digital FM Radio offers Bluetooth connectivity allowing the connection of smartphones and other audio devices to stream the audio through the large internal speaker. Connection of audio devices without Bluetooth is also possible via the AUX (Auxiliary) input (3.5mm socket).
About DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcast Plus)
DAB+ radio uses an advanced, digital and robust transmission system to over come the problems of interference on MW (AM) signals and multi-path distortion on FM. This improves performance over conventional broadcasting systems by offering improved building penetration and reception on the move, such as when using Public Transport. In Australia DAB+ transmissions are made in band III VHF spectrum on Ch9/9A. DAB+ offers a huge range of programming and many traditional MW broadcasters simulcast in this mode to achieve a larger audience, including those who are unable to receive satisfactory MW signals. In addition, DAB+ radios include a visual display which can show news and weather information as well as current programming information.
