OK. That takes care of the “who”, let’s talk about the “what”.
The Classic DAB+ is available in piano black or ivory white finishes at an RRP of $299. Variety of content is key. Music, talkback, news and sport… pretty much what you get now with analogue radio but with a gazillion more channels to choose from. Imagine how many Kyle Sandilandses and John Lawses of the international airwaves you haven’t listened to yet.
