Pioneer Launches USB DAB Adapter to Bring DAB/DAB+ Radio Entertainment to Selected Pioneer Audio Products

14.09.2017

Pioneer is pleased to announce a new USB DAB Adapter (AS-DB100) that brings a wealth of DAB/DAB+ radio content to compatible Pioneer products simply by connecting the device to a USB port.

With most commercial and government radio broadcasters offering AM/FM program simulcasting on DAB/DAB+ using the high-quality AAC digital codec, listeners can enjoy pristine audio clarity in any weather conditions with no interference and more accurate tuning. Furthermore, broadcasters offer a wide range of additional digital stations featuring special-interest programming for specific kinds of music, as well as sports, talk, news, and more.

Depending on the service, metadata encoded in the radio signal enables display of a variety of information including current song, program details, weather and traffic alerts, and more, all supported on the Pioneer component’s FL display.

As of September 2017, the following Pioneer models support the AS-DB100 USB DAB Adapter: SX-N30AE Network Player, VSX-832 5.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver, VSX-932(B) 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver, and VSX-LX302(B) 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver.

Supports DAB/DAB+ Digital Radio
The adapter supports DAB and DAB+ broadcasts available in the region of operation, comprising simulcast AM and FM stations and additional exclusive digital stations.
