Are DRM receivers more complex than analogue ones and does this explain the price?
Digital radio is a new, digital platform totally part of the new digital age that offers better audio than analogue. This is supplemented by a host of other extra features and services like data, text, emergency warning, traffic information etc. making radio a truly digital hub serviced over the airwaves and in the case of DRM on all possible bands. A digital receiver with all this functionality requires high-performance chipsets and complex engineering. But nothing that good engineers and enterprising businessmen cannot turn into good profitable products.
