Sony XDR-S40DBP DAB+ digital radio, black

Sony XDR-S40DBP DAB+ digital radio, black Product no.: 9000-0008-2457 Warranty period: This product comes with a 3-year warranty.


The Sony XDR-S40DBP DAB+ digital radio represents the future of radio. The black, mobile radio features the new transmission standard DAB+, a.k.a. Digital Audio Broadcasting+, the successor of DAB and the analogue FM. DAB+ offers a crystal-clear sound and is much less prone to interference than analogue radio signals like FM. And what's more, this digital alternative offers space for more stations. Of course, you can also still listen to FM radio with the XDR-S40DBP, thanks to the addition of a rod antenna. The lightweight Sony digital radio is a practical, mobile device that can run on mains power (a power adapter is included), as well as on four (rechargeable) AA batteries (not included).

Speaker and options

Sony's XDR-S40DBP is equipped with a single speaker with a 66mm diameter and a power of 0.3 watt. That means it supplies mono audio. If you'd rather listen to stereo radio, however, you can plug in a pair of headphones via the 3.5mm jack output. A large volume knob can be found on the side of the radio, and the front panel is fitted with seven buttons that control features such as DAB+/FM selection, preset stations, menu and station selection. Right above these buttons is an LCD display with orange lighting that provides various information, such as the name of the radio station, FM or DAB+, the preset station, the battery power indication, etc. With the development of DAB+ technology, much more information - such as traffic information, for instance - could become available in the future.

DAB+ equals more stations

DAB+ has replaced the older DAB technology. Digital radio has many benefits compared to its analogue counterpart. A single DAB+ frequency can be used to transmit various stations, for instance, so you no longer need to search for specific frequencies. As digital signals take up less space in the ether, more room is available for other stations. DAB+ is used in several countries world-wide, particularly in Europe. In addition to the familiar public broadcasting and commercial stations that could be found via FM, many stations that were previously only available via cable or Internet radio can now also be found in the ether.
