DAB adap­tors tested

We tune in to name our favourite for in-car up­grades

IF your car’s head unit doesn’t give you ac­cess to dig­i­tal ra­dio, an adap­tor can pro­vide a so­lu­tion. It con­nects to the ve­hi­cle’s in­fo­tain­ment set-up and pro­vides a DAB ra­dio sig­nal for play­ing through the orig­i­nal sound sys­tem.

It’s a neat so­lu­tion, but there’s more than one way to de­liver that sig­nal – and Den­sion’s new adap­tor takes a dif­fer­ent ap­proach to our Is­sue 1,440 test win­ner from Pure. The new­comer uses the ex­ist­ing ra­dio’s dis­play, while Pure’s High­way has a sep­a­rate con­trol unit.

So which is the one to bring your car up to date? We rated ease of use, DAB re­cep­tion plus the other fea­tures of­fered.

The Den­sion im­pressed us with its high-qual­ity graph­ics and good wire­less trans­mis­sion, but the Pure re­mains our pick thanks to its Blue­tooth stream­ing and great sound qual­ity.
