OK, speaking of all this DAB malarky.... am I the only one that finds  
it very strange that this new transmission method comes out (which I  
presume to be higher quality than FM) and the market leader is a mono  
unit?  What's that all about?

Also, anyone here got a DAB head unit in their car?  What is the  
coverage like?  Do you get coverage in all the places you get FM? Or  
is it a bit like 3G where you are mainly likely to get it in big  
urban areas?  And do DAB car head units normally support regular FM  
as well?
