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.
