    An excellent product and Skot’s assistance proved invaluable. He goes the extra mile to ensure that you get what you actually need and that once you have it it performs optimally. I can’t recommend Cushie Audio highly enough.

    I’m very pleased with the Dension DAB+U unit I purchased from Cushie. Now I have digital radio on my 2012 Civic factory nav unit without needing to replace the head unit.
    Steering wheel controls work perfectly and the after sales support has been second to none. Skot has been very quick with his replies, helping me get the best out of the unit with the config file selection.
    Highly recommend working with Skot to select the best way to add digital radio to your car!

    I love DAB ., have it in my FGX Falcons as standard , have it in my workshop , have it at home . But my MKIIFalcons don’t have it . Nothing was really on the market that was decent or cost effective . Step forward the Denison DAB+U . Very simple . Plug into usb in car and route the powered DAB+ antenna and set source and we have 46 Stations . Buffering take a few seconds and you have seamless digital radio.
    I live in the Adelaide hills and if the factory DAB can receive a signal so can the Denison. ( actually a little better range ) . I was skeptical at first when buying , but didn’t need to worry, it just simply works.
    If you have any doubt or issues there is guaranteed support. My unit worked straight away and I did message Cushie Audio to inform them everything went well. No sooner I left a message I got a response. This is an ideal cost effective solution if you have a factory head unit that has USB port. Don’t Umm and Err like I did just buy it, you won’t regret it.

    I recently had a Dension unit installed in my BMW 125 M series (Oct 2021); I love music/good sound & do quite a bit of driving for my work. I’d researched options online & also spoke to an audio specialist who was familiar with these units & this seemed to be the best way to go. Total cost with installation was around $580.
    I am really happy with the result! The unit is neatly out of sight in the console; I can still charge my iPhone by way of a usb doubler adapter & I now have direct access to 76 DAB stations – fantastic!
    System is easy to use & sound is very good – so much better than FM stations. For me, this has been an excellent result as the lack of DAB was my only gripe with this vehicle – but not any more. Skot was extremely helpful throughout the process & guided me without any pressure.
    I am very happy to recommend both Cushie Audio & the Dension unit should you be looking for a similar solution for access to DAB stations.

    Dension DAB+U is a good unit, works great in our 2013 Kia sorento, but not so in the commodore.
    Great after sales service from Cushie Audio, very good to deal with and lots of help if needed. Cheers

    Brilliant product and great fun chatting with the boss [in case you have a Pinball machine as well]

    Installs easily into a K1600GT and has not lost a beat for a second on the roads in Melbourne, also greatly improving the audio compared to the stock FM

    Highly recommended

    I purchased the dension dab+u and unfortunately it was incompatible with my device. The support team worked hard in helping but couldn’t resolve the issue. They offered me a refund for the product and i was very thankful towards the company. Would happily shop here again.

    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
