Arcam launches iPod-friendly DAB/DAB+ FMJ T32 tuner
Having built the world's first DAB tuner and made the best sounding sub-£100 iPod dock we've heard to date, a product from Arcam the unites radio and iPod connectivity certainly has us interested.
The FMJ T32 does just that, combining DAB/DAB+/AM/FM tuners with a dedicated interface once an iPod is connected using the company's r-Dock or r-Lead cable.
Building on the existing FMJ T31, the new model supports DAB+ to hopefully ensure it's future-proof for any possible changes to the DAB system in the UK.
Elsewhere there's a Wolfson 8740 DAC as used in Arcam's DVD players, plus Burr Brown OPA2134 output op-amps and separate power supplies for the digital and analogue sections.
There's a large, clear VFD display, which delivers scrolling DAB text and RDS info plus all your iPod tracks and playlists.
Available in black or silver, the Arcam FMJ T32 will retail for around £500.
