Hey guy's just wanted to write a little review about the JVC KD-DB53At I had installed by one of your stores a while back now. I didn't really want to pay 2-300 quid for a unit when I really only drive my car a few times a week on short runs but at the same time I really wanted to go for a unit with DAB radio, the price and features of this JVC DAb radio was just what I was after and I have to say it's very easy to understand without having to sit there for ages studying the user manual! I picked up most of the functions with the demo I was given after installation, in short great unit, impressive dab reception and best of all I now have a remote control sweeeet! The dab antenna is hardly noticed until pointed out, to be honest I thought this would use the same antenna so I guess it's good I went to the pro's to have this sorted for me! Thanks again guy's absolute legends.
