Hey, I am looking for a supplier of Digital radio's (DAB+) who can ship to Australia.

I am unsure how to go about getting electrical products from overseas to be shipped with the right plug, so if anybody can fill me in on this that would be great too

thanks

Simon

Hi Simon,

I learned this is not going to be easy.

Consumers should be careful if considering buying and importing a digital radio from overseas or from international websites as different countries have adopted different digital radio standards. For example, the USA uses a standard known as ‘HD Radio’ and the UK uses the older DAB standard. Digital radios that are readily available in other countries may not receive Australian DAB+ broadcasts.

And there are already several manufacturers (with stockists) for DAB+ digital radios in Australia like Link hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to view and Link hidden: Login to view

Importing these radios should satisfy the DAB+ requirement and should be at pricing lower than these manufacturers offer, because there will be a shipping cost to consider. :)

I'll see if I can find any potential source other than from within Australia. :)

Hi again Simon,

All of the UK based suppliers I have seen offer DAB, which are of the older versions, and from what I have learned, will not work with the DAB+ Australia requirement.

I found one Australia based wholesale supplier though, for DAB+ digital radios- Link hidden: Login to view

We are a leading supplier of alternative powered products to the Australian market both wholesale and direct to the customer.

Hope this helps, somehow. :)
