Thread: DAB Reception

  1. Default DAB Reception

    I have a 2018 RS3 Sedan that sometimes cuts out too, then if I flick to the next DAB station it might play for a sec then cut out or it wonít play at all. I had my roof and antenna wrapped in black PPF and thought it may be the reason causing the disruption, itís definitley annoying!

    Mine only drops out in tunnels and car parks in Sydney. There's another thread here referencing my pet peeve about tunnel reception.

    Mine drops out all the time, my wifeís X5 never. Also her sound quality kills mine, she has no particular sound package that I remember and I have the B&O package.

    My work place struggle to sell DAB products all because of this.
    Although having said that, my mate B8 A4 seems to get good reception within Melb.
