DAB radio

DAB is a procedure for digital transmission of radio programs.

The DAB system was developed in Europe within the framework of a European development program and in recent years has been introduced in many European countries.

The audio signals from up to 12 radio stations are packaged into a multiplex and bundled into a single data stream. This is then broadcast via one or more terrestrial transmitters. This means that individual transmitters are no longer needed for each radio station.

In addition to the much larger range of stations that can be provided to radio listeners through DAB, there are also several big technical advantages over the current FM, MW, LW and SW transmission:

  • Provided the receiver can receive the signal from the DAB transmitter, sound reproduction is guaranteed. There is no fading, as is typical for AM and mobile FM reception.
  • Interference, such as crackling noises caused by high voltage lines, is filtered out by the DAB receiver.
  • With DAB, there is no overlapping of different stations.
  • If the transmission signal is reflected by natural obstacles or buildings while en route, this causes interference with FM. With DAB, however, reception is significantly improved by this.

Service linking

As soon as the audio device no longer receives the FM signal in sufficient quality, it automatically switches to the corresponding DAB transmitter, but the FM display in the audio device remains active.

When the FM signal becomes available again in sufficient quality, the device automatically switches back.

AUX port

The audio systems have an auxiliary device input (AUX IN) which enables the playback of auxiliary devices such as MiniDisc or MP3 players via the vehicle's audio system. Sounds is played back through the vehicle loudspeakers.
