    I am very pleased with my Dension DAB+U car radio receiver. I have a Mazda 2 and it went in easily enough.

    The active antenna was easily stuck to the windscreen on the passenger’s side. There is a convenient little hole at the base of the pillar to run the cables through.
    I did this and the cables are completely hidden behind the glove box.

    I also could easily run the USB cable out through the right-hand side of the glove box. The glove box needs to be temporarily removed to do this and it was also very easy to do this.

    The DAB unit also goes inside the dash to the left of the glove box. Everything is hidden and hardly noticeable when everything is put back in.
    The digital sound is just great and I am enjoying it thoroughly.

    I brought this unit from Cushie audio and I am glad that I did.

    From the help I have received before and after the sale, very quick delivery to the cd quality sound and clarity every car needs this unit.
    Starting with a simple installation to easy to navigate stations all on the screen of the factory radio it is a breeze to change and listen to all 60+ stations here in Sydney, So much so that I brought a second unit for my gf’s car and she loves it also.

    I have an upgraded stereo and it sounds fantastic, its crystal clear even through my gf’s stock system. Just add the aerial which is needed and your away.

    My review of the Dension DAB+U October 2017
    I purchased my unit from Cushie Audio and installed it myself it’s, an easy enough job following the supplied instruction, the only difficulty could be hiding your wiring but that is dependent on your car layout
    As for running of the aerial cable I checked out YouTube.

    Now the unit itself I had a problem with it at first as it turned out I did not download, and install the necessary configuration file (definitely needed) make sure you download the file for your car
    For my 2017 Subaru Outback it is “dbu_K67.cfg”
    Chris from Cushie Audio was a big help (good after sale help)

    I live out of the Sydney reception area (Yarramundi) and this unit works out here I recently went through Richmond, Windsor, Maraylya, Glenorie, Galston, and onto Hornsby, A trip that was about 80 mins in duration
    The only problem I had were in two spots where I lost reception
    1st one Cattai Ridge Rd Cattai deep between two hills a loss of 20-30 seconds
    2nd one at the bottom of Galston Gorge Galston that took 30-40 seconds to come back
    There is section on Cattai Ridge Rd where AM band, is unbearable to listen, the static is a shocker I normally switch the radio off, or listen to my mp3’s.
    And that would apply for about 3-4 minutes but with the Dension DAB+ pure bliss
    The Dension DAB+U device is equipped with ABSA an ‘Automatic Buffer Size Assessment’ so be aware that it will take a few seconds for the buffer to do its job
    I have a very good audio system in my car, and to listen to this Digital radio through my system it’s fantastic
    For me a good purchase
