What Is DAB+?
DAB+ is an upgraded version of DAB, using a more advanced audio codec and better error correction coding. DAB+ is the standard form of digital radio broadcasting in many countries in Europe and Australia. DAB+ has three times more efficiency than DAB, and can carry more stations.
On-Screen Text Display
DAB/DAB+ digital radio can stream text information, offering data such as station name, song title, and artist’s name, to be displayed on the component’s display.
DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) offers radio entertainment from a huge choice of stations ranging from rock, soul, hip-hop, jazz, sports, news, talk, to children’s programs, in digital sound free of hiss and crackles. You can listen free, and no subscription is required. In fact, most AM and FM broadcasters simulcast their content on DAB/DAB+, so you can enjoy your favorite programs in better sound quality. By connecting the AS-DB100 to a compatible Pioneer component such as an AV receiver via the included USB cable, you can easily add DAB entertainment with minimum space required.
No need to remember frequencies, or tweak the dial for good reception. You can easily search stations by using the automatic tuning function on your component. Your favorite stations can be saved on your component’s preset memory for quick access. What’s more, new stations are frequently added to DAB/DAB+, so you can scan to find the latest entertainment in your area.
