    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This DAB is the easy way to get DAB radio in your Car Great bit of kit to get DAB in the car without changing stereo. Only down side it loses signal in rural areas which is understandable but apart from that very pleased with it no more AM MW terrible signals

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Absolutely hopeless reception. First the good, easy to fit and set up. thats that done. now the many problems: A) The sticky pads on the smaller attachment piece and suction cup on the removable one will not adhere to the standard mottled plastic trim found on many dashboards, you need a good expanse of smooth plastic for the round piece to be of any use or some glue and a devil may care attitude to your trim if you want it mounted unobtrusively. B) The clip on/off piece attaching the radio unit to the dash mount is awkward to slide onto the radio back without getting in close and watching closely to be sure all the lugs engage and the threaded grip pieces that hold the ball of the ash mount are flimsy, one has already snapped and I've had to fettle a fix with a zip tie. C) The real killer of a problem with this unit though: Even driving in the centres and populous suburbs of large cities and major A# & M# intercity trunk roads , reception is patchy at best and largely absent . BBC stations seem to transmit with more power than independents (Absolute's stable of channels can barely be received) although even these more powerful channels drop out with monotonous and infuriating regularity. I drove Manchester - Newcastle and return last weekend, deliberately leaving this unit on. I drove in near total silence for the 150 miles.barring seconds of reception giving literally the odd single line spatter of a song. In comparison to the factory fitted DAB radio in my wife's car this receiver is dross. Driving the same routes, The nextbase will receive at best 50% of the transmission my wife does. Tuning in the channels is a feat of finding a patch of good reception and stopping there. Outside my house I got 11 channels, a few hundred yards up the road 47. I have resorted to a cheap pocket DAB radio I usually take to sports with me, velcroed to the dashboard. Even running both this and the Nextbase simultaneously as a test, the pocket DAB using a headphone cable as the aerial had a far more consistent and clear reception across a range of stations. I have checked and double checked wiring, correct aerial installation, 'noise' suppression etc, the unit is and peripherals are all correctly installed. The other aggravation is that when the selected radio station drops out, you cannot tune off it using the preset buttons, they seem to freeze/become intentionally inoperative. I could not recommend this receiver unit to someone I didn't like. save a good proportion of the cost and buy a non car specific DAB and fettle a fit into your car or seek another manufacturer of a specific in car unit because this one just doesn't cut the mustard.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Generally not ready I purchased this for better performance but the signal kept dropping out. Unless your in a very strong signal area this dab adaptor won’t work. The store where I bought it had no signal at all. This is just not ready until the UK has a 20/20 signal. Hence had to return for a refund.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have a 25 mike commute to work and this adaptor only receives a signal for less than 2 miles of it. Despite my other vehicles already fitted with DAB either by my self or by the manufacturer. This unit is utter rubbish. I purchased because I have a nextbase dashcam which is faultless. So all in all very disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Was going to buy the sonichi dab adapter, but was advised to wait and buy this when it came in stock. Glad I waited. Easy to fit, actually amazingly easy to fit. Hid the long wires and I’m really impressed.
