Ocean Digital WiFi Internet Radio DBA-03R DAB/DAB – Poor DAB reception with supplied areal but otherwise a very nice unit

I related up to my old aiwa stack system with it is really pretty highly effective speakers. I now, in addition to vinyl and cassette, i have internet radio, bluetooth connection, residence community link as effectively as dab through the exact same process. Simple relationship to all, recommendations incredibly clear. I typically questioned why bothered about internet radio. The difference is very pronounced. Listening to a certain style from various international locations signifies there are various enjoy lists and you dont have to hear to the very same outdated tracks performed by stations in this country. To discover the stations, you down load the app (mine on to a laptop) you then lookup the checklist, and attempt the stations. Insert them to your favourites and they surface on the ocean digital system. I can not praise it remarkably ample are not able to praise this program significant adequate.

Terrific radio appears to be like and seems outstanding. Can i delete a duplicated favorite from the menu?.

Amazing item just what i will need. I preferred it so a lot i bought the extra expensive one particular with optical output which appears a lot much better on the toslink. I have not been equipped to locate my favour station magic 105. four on the internet list but the dab a single is effective high-quality. If you select the bluetooth output and link my apple iphone 7 by bluetooth i only get sound from the two. There is no output from the optical output. The optical output is effective fine in the relaxation of the modes internet radio, dab, fm, and so forth.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Brilliant product just what I need but has bugs which need fixing.
  • Ocean Digital Internet/DAB Radio
  • Good value radio

I bought this tuner to use with the audio enter of a henry kloss radio which has a lovely seem. Could not be far more happy with the final result. Pretty clear reception from all sources and so easy to use. Cannot believe of a a lot more cost powerful way of acquiring fantastic sounding wifi, dab, dab+ and fm.

The internet radio connects rapidly and seems great. In dab mode, the seem is very clear and thorough. Fm radio does not get the job done at all in which i stay, but i dwell in an old barn conversion in the countryside with big thick partitions, so that’s likely why. The bluetooth works no difficulty. I have not tried out the plug ‘ n’ perform mode but. Every little thing is effective from the remote manage, so i do have a gripe that batteries are not included for the distant which means you can not get started out with it straight out the box unless of course you materialize to have triple a batteries to hand. The directions are alright, typically producing sense soon after the translation. I’m pretty delighted with my buy.

Wonderful versatile innocuous little tuner for internet, dab, fm and bluetooth. With a little aerial the dab reception is place sensitive but in our summerhouse performs much better than the bose in the kitchen.

This is fantastic high-quality, with countless numbers of stations to opt for from, great price for money.

On the whole rather great benefit and does the occupation i purchased it for. It is a awesome searching device and i just change it on and it performs. It is only 4 stars even though for the reason that of a couple of niggles, which could possibly not be a difficulty for all people. It only shops a one wi-fi connection environment, so if you want to use it about a non permanent link or consider it somewhere you have to put he options in – and without the need of a keyboard it takes a extended, extended time to set in each individual character independently of a very long passphrase. There is no ethernet socket either so you have no decision but to hook up it to wi-fi. It does pause and buffer somewhat a good deal. I suspect it is due to high latency on the internet, but with a 20mb internet connection there is no excuse. The quantity manage is a little bit class. When listening late at evening i cannot change the quantity to the excellent placing – it is possibly to peaceful, or loud more than enough that it could disturb other individuals. It has really a significant dynamic variety so applause can be extremely loudthings i like about it:-1. Seems pretty good with a great end to the black wooden situation. Appears a good deal extra high-priced than it value.

I was amazed to discover that the radio had no volume handle. Extra acquire was needed to be equipped to use it. In any other case, when quantity is decreased with added gear, it functions nicely.

I live in a bad dab and fm reception space so acquired this device which has solved all my difficulties, i have found radio stations i didn’t know existed.

Am really pleased with this leading radio and excellent support.

Possessing up to now used my laptop to entry internet radio, when we preferred an additional radio for our new kitchen/diner, we initially experimented with a dab established – useless in our city – and for not a good deal more revenue acquired this, a quite nicely completed and respectable sounding ‘radio’, and apart from a several glitches setting it up (probably because of as substantially to our home wifi and none too fast broadband as something else – fibre shortly i think) and storing stations, which we soon received the hold of, it is fantastic, pretty excellent price also. Desire we could also get bbc pay attention again companies on these, but are not able to have anything i suppose. At the very least i can now hear to bbc 6 radio and radio caroline although absent from the computer system now, as very well as finding tons of new channels to explore.

Amazing piece of equipement, wonderful sound for it is sizing and as it states one,000’s of stations accessable – best.

Does what it says in the box. Requires environment up to get started with.

Rapid supply and properly packaged. It is really a little bit naff if truth be acknowledged, the interface is not good, but it is effective very well and the sound high quality of improved than typical.

Set up seemswooden aqnd not at all intuative – created by engineers for engineers.

I purchased this device to exchange a freecom musicpal device which experienced instantly died. Pretty delighted,quick to established up, simple to run, wide collection of stations and superior sound utilizing with my quad amplification and keep track of audio speakers. I would advocate if using with superior hi fi.

This is a fantastic item although i’ve only been employing the dab radio, – i’ve not yet labored out how to join it to my wi-fi as my password is in capitals nevertheless the password appears to only enable decrease circumstance letters, – i’m guaranteed there is certainly a little something i am lacking. The downside is that there is certainly no handbook but it is available as a down load from the ocean digital web-site. The clock is a handy attribute – it really is wonderful and crystal clear and has three brightness configurations.

Operates genuinely well but each now and then it has challenges connecting to wi-fi. Then it connects and functions once again without any community problems. Other time it connects quickly. All with the wi-fi router and the set staying in the similar put ~6 meters aside.

One Comment on “Ocean Digital WiFi Internet Radio DBA-03R DAB/DAB – Poor DAB reception with supplied areal but otherwise a very nice unit”

  1. Bought the unit to replace mmy failed radio tuner connected to my old fashioned ‘hifi seperates’ system. Setup was straight forward, though helps if you spend a couple of minutes reading the manual first. Wifi supports 2g and 5g channels and mine connected to my router without any issue on 5g and quickly found numerous internet radio channels. Radio sits in a cabinet about 20ft from the router and have no issues with connection drop out or buffering delays etc. Thought dab reception might be a problem, but with the supplied aerial fully extended, i had no issues with dab either. Only using the analogue output, but at least on my system, found sound quality to be very good, though this also dependant upon the quality of the broadcasted channels, which does vary. I recommend downloading the app, as this makes it much easier to control the radio, and strangely lets you control the output volume, which you cannot do any other way.

    The set up is easy and the controls are good to use. The sound is excellent as is the range of radio stations available. My husband is severely sight impaired and i want to say a big thank you to kevin, who took the time and trouble to find and add some of his favourite stations for him. This is the customer service you hope to get and so very seldom do.

    Main disadvantage, that it doesn’t have volume control. Some other bugs:- sometimes don’t connect after not active time. In order to fix that i need to turn off and turn on again. – shows ‘local error’ in internet radios. – constantly stopping to play if ‘keep network connection’ is set to no- it’s not clear how to find playlists. In general, very good device.

    1. The dab areal that’s supplied is poor so i changed for a better quality one – you may need to factor in the cost but depends on reception quality where you live. Otherwise works as intended and the sound quality via the optical output port is great.

The instructions are ok, mostly making sense after the translation. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

    I wish i bought this earlier. Set up was easy, no problem with either wifi nor bluetooth connections. It’s very compact size, and has a great sound. You can search radio stations by country and genre all around the world. I keep listening iranian traditional folk music that i have never heard before but now i totally love.

    This is a great product although i’ve only been using the dab radio, – i’ve not yet worked out how to connect it to my wi-fi as my password is in capitals however the password seems to only allow lower case letters, – i’m sure there’s something i’m missing. The downside is that there’s no manual but it is available as a download from the ocean digital website. The clock is a handy feature – it’s nice and clear and has 3 brightness settings.

    This wi-if radio is excellent. Dab and bluetooth work well too. I wrote a critical review of a previous ocean model (the wr01c wi-if only model) because it didn’t work well with bt broadband, but the dba03r model seems to have overcome these issues. I thoroughly recommend this one (and the dab only model that i also own). The ocean customer support team and really helpful too. The only criticism is that the items frequently arrive damaged in the mail (royal mail in this instsnce).

    It compliments my old bose wave radio beautifully equipping it with dab, internet radio and bluetooth capabilities. I love the colour display and it also features a proper external antenna connection so i can connect it to my external aerial. There is a similar product to this on the market which only has a built-in telescopic antenna and no aerial socket which would be no use to me. Fast response when buttons are pushed on the included decent sized remote control with zero lag. This unit is very slim so i can place it at the front of a shelf and still store items behind it. It sounds great also (via my bose wave radio used as an amplifier) as the unit does not have any built in speaker(s). Fills a gap in the market particularly for users who prefer to still use their vintage or favourite audio equipment and gain the additional benefits this unit has to offer. It gets a thumbs up from me.

I have not been able to find my favour station magic 105. 4 on the internet list but the dab one works fine. If you select the bluetooth output and connect my iphone 7 by bluetooth i only get sound from the 2. There is no output from the optical output. The optical output works fine in the rest of the modes internet radio, dab, fm, etc.

    I connected up to my old aiwa stack system with it’s very powerful speakers. I now, in addition to vinyl and cassette, i have internet radio, bluetooth connection, home network connection as well as dab through the same system. Easy connection to all, instructions very clear. I often wondered why bothered about internet radio. The difference is quite pronounced. Listening to a certain genre from different countries means there are different play lists and you dont have to listen to the same old tracks played by stations in this country. To find the stations, you download the app (mine onto a laptop) you then search the list, and try the stations. Add them to your favourites and they appear on the ocean digital system. I cannot praise it highly enough can’t praise this system high enough.

I tried it on the brightest display setting as well. Hence the reason for a four-star review.

      1. I cannot give a proper review of this radio as i tried to use it in a mode where i imagined it would work, but it does not. You set it up using your computer, and the portal gives you access to a very large number of broadcasters. However, i thought the audio output might work with earphones and it does not. You can hear the sound but the quality is so bad that listening is impossible. Also there is no volume control. I have not tested it with powered speakers, which is what it is advertised to work with, as i do not have any.

    I received the product in time as promised and once connected to my bose unit it was easy to set up and works as intended in all aspects. However, and there is a big however. I live in danmark, europe and the power unit that comes with this product does not come with a european wall plug. I had to go out to buy an adaptor so i could use it here in europe. To be able to use the dab tingi together with my bose unit, which obviously had my tv connected to its optical port, i had to get an optical splitter, which came with, yes you guessed it, a european power plug, and several other adapters for other countries, so why on earth did ocean digital not come prepared for europe?. So 3 stars given inspite of a very good product, its just not ready to be used in europe.

I live in danmark, europe and the power unit that comes with this product does not come with a european wall plug. I had to go out to buy an adaptor so i could use it here in europe. To be able to use the dab tingi together with my bose unit, which obviously had my tv connected to its optical port, i had to get an optical splitter, which came with, yes you guessed it, a european power plug, and several other adapters for other countries, so why on earth did ocean digital not come prepared for europe?. So 3 stars given inspite of a very good product, its just not ready to be used in europe.
    1. I am missing to control the loudness from what i am hearing with the remote control.

    This receiver is ok, sensitivity wifi is good, speed loading of streams is good, display of perfectly readable, the remote control works reliably. Selecting stations wifiradio-frontier. Com is currently about 31,000 radio stations, i found everything i needed (after registration and entering the code from the device). 5mm jack for connecting the antenna for fm / dab + is not practical – would recommend to buy the reduction of the classic antenna connector. The power supply is connected only to the uk, the eu’s reduction in the package is not (you can buy without any problems).
