TEAC T-R650 DAB/FM/AM Separate Tuner,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TEAC T-R650DAB DAB/AM/FM Stereo Tuner (Electronics)
I purchsed this Tuner as it had Presets for all three Bands - toboot not in the correct order for my way of thinking but adaquate.
It came quickly and efficiently from Amazon and was simply to install - I used the provided wire DAB aerial behind a painting on the wall above the Tuner - used my existing large FM Aerial on the roof and the small Loop Aerial provided for AM. The Manual had plenty of information on facilities (too much for me).
Manual tuning is a bit painful as it picks up nearly every carrier and noise on each Band.
Tuning can be carried out using the Remote provided or the Manual Tune knob on the front panel.
One quirk - the LED Power red light is lit when the Tuner is OFF and the LED is out when the Tuner is ON!
DAB presets=10: FM and AM Presets =30 each; (should be the other way round).
As with all computer driven devices there are dozens of extra facilities not needed - it does have FM Traffic RDS which is good.
Quality is good, Quieting is good. The screen provides a host of information.
Switching stations on DAB takes quite a few seconds.
Providing you accept the complex Tuning arrangements a lovely Tuner - low on Power Consumption, 9Watts and only 0.5Watt on Standby.
