Very good sound (for a DAB tuner anyway!) simple to use, great value. If Cambridge have fixed the above problem, then I would definitely recommend this product.. Stopped working after a couple of years - whichever station I tuned in, the display showed 'station unavailable'. I do well recommend Cambridge Audio DAB300. (read more)

The Cambridge Audio DAB300 is my 4th DAB tuner (!) since 2001, after a Videologic DRX601E and 2 Arcam DT81's, all of which failed. As I live near Crystal Palace, that could have something to do with it, but no problems with the Cambridge, even considering I use the wire aerial supplied indoors.
Set-up was simple and I like the way the Cambridge scans for stations when it's switched on.
Reception is amazing, particularly on live Radio 3 concerts, you almost feel like you are there in the... (read more)

The Cambridge Audio DAB300 Tuner sounds fantastic, really good reception and heavy bass but I have one problem and I wondered if others suffered the same? My unit switches itself on and off of it's own accord quite frequently! This is my second unit and this one is even worse if anything, it switched off automatically in the first hour of listening. If any others have this problem I'd appreciate knowing. email@example.com (read more)

I have used DAB for a while on a 'portable' receiver, which gave a sufficiently creditable performance to use through a Hi Fi system and encouraged me to go for a full size receiver. The price of the cambridge audio DAB300, that too was worth a risk
I have experience of using Freeview (Panasonic) tuner and Sky (Sony and Grundig digiboxes) to listen to DAB. In comparison the cambridge audio DAB300 radio is in a different league of audio quality. Having used Harmon-Kardon , Yamaha and... (read more)

DAB (digital audio broadcasting) is fundamentally limited - most stations broadcast at a highly compressed 128kbps, similar to MP3 files. However, this little fact simply makes the DAB300 from Cambridge Audio all the more impressive.
The sound is superb, with real detail and depth in the bass and clean, unobtrusive treble that manages to avoid sounding compressed on most stations. The slim, silver hi-fi seperate has a clear display with genuinely useful features like a signal strength... (read more)
