Key Features

DAB radio

DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) is the next generation of radio.

DAB was developed in Europe by a consortium of broadcasters and manufacturers.

DAB uses digital audio compression techniques to transform the source material, i.e. music and speech, into digital code before it is transmitted. The code consists of electronic ‘ones and zeros’ called binary digits or bits. The binary code is then multiplexed or grouped together to create a superior signal, when compared with the older, analogue system, with the following key benefits:

Near CD quality sound

Interference free reception

No need to retune

iPod Docking

Any iPod can be connected to the DAB radio to allow all your songs to be played through the DAB radio speakers. Various adaptors are provided to allow all iPods to be connected.

Sound levels

Your hearing is very important to you and to us, so please take care when using the DAB Radio. It is strongly recommended that you follow the listed guidelines in order to prevent possible damage or loss of hearing, especially when using headphones.

Establish a safe sound level

Over time your hearing will adapt to continuous loud sounds and will give the impression that the volume has in fact been reduced. What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful. To guard against this before your hearing adapts, set the volume to a low level.

Slowly increase the level until you can hear comfortably and clearly and without distortion. Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible. Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud.

Once you have established a comfortable listening level, do not increase the sound level.
