While setting up the unit I found that the supplied DAB aerial produced a display of ‘No Service’, so I bought a metal aerial. This aerial also produced a display of ‘No Service’, so I bought a longer ‘T’ aerial which when fitted found a few stations, but many had poor reception. I again sought advice and was informed that I need an external DAB aerial to be fitted. In my house, I have 3 portable Roberts DAB radios all of which receive all stations clearly with their own supplied aerial, including in the new location that I intended to place the new Sony HiFi. I feel the DAB receiver in the Sony HiFi is not strong enough. My Roberts radios costing a quarter of the cost of the Sony are all able to clearly receive DAB stations, so feel that I should not need the additional cost and inconvenience of having to have an external DAB aerial fitted.
