With Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon Music apps all available to listen to on our smartphones, it’s never been easier to listen to music. But what if we said that there was a radio that could let you listen to these apps, CD’s, and radio stations on DAB + giving great sounds quality? Well luckily there is, in the name of Majority Oakington.
In this article, we’ll be revealing all about the Majority Oakington radio from sound quality to appearance, and ease of use to setting radio channels, so all that’s needed to do is to go out and buy it, if this is the radio for you.
Before we have a look at the Majority Oakington radio, let’s find out further what a DAB radio actually is.
What is a DAB Radio?
DAB is an acronym for Digital Audio Broadcasting and it essentially means that the radio is digital and is broadcast from a UK-wide network of transmitters. It uses digital technology which enables broadcasters to package together several radio stations.
It might be surprising to know that the first DAB digital radio was released in 1995 in the London area starting out with five national networks which extended in 1998 to 60% of the UK population.
What is DAB+ ?
DAB+ is a newer version of DAB which was released in 2007 and is more efficient than DAB allowing more stations to be broadcast and in higher quality if desired by the broadcaster.
Of course, these radios have come a long way since they were first released over 25 years ago which is what we’re here to speak about, so let’s get on with it!
