Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

IFA 2011 Sony has announced its first DAB+ car radio that’s due to hit the road early next year. The CDX-DAB700U is touted as a CD receiver with DAB/DAB+/DMB-R support as well as FM/AM reception.

If loading a CD seems a bit too 1980s for you, MP3, WMA and AAC discs are also playable as well as audio from USB flash drives and, of course, there’s the analogue aux input.

The unit’s amplifier delivers 4 x 52W and features an automatic level optimiser, dynamic loudness, a seven-band equaliser, rear speaker bass enhancement and a sub output. A two line display delivers information with eight characters on the top line and 12 below which can even change colour to suit your vehicle’s colour scheme.

The supplied aerial fits inside the windscreen and there are remote options and iPod support too. Pricing has yet to be announed yet with the digital switchover looming, Sony plans to make CDX-DAB700U available from February/March 2012. ®
