Default d2+dab+ radio just digital or analog too?

I've just started researching mp3 players. I like the new d2+dab+ (dab+ is the digital radio format in Australia) but not all radio stations have gone digital yet. Does the d2+dab+ have an analog radio as well as digital? Does anyone know? Thanks.

It still has a standard FM tuner as well.

Default s9 digital radio?

Thanks dfkt, from what I've read it seems the s9 is better than the d2+dab+ but the s9 does not have a digital radio is this true? I do prefer the sd card option on the d2+dab+ though.Appreciate any input thanks.

The D2+ won't play DAB+ - just DAB. The only player that plays DAB+ is the iRiver B30 but I wouldn't recommend it as it has no physical buttons.

Default d2+ with dab+ advertised

Hey Dreamnine there is an Australian site www.haldexdirect.com.au that advertises the new d2+ with dab+ digital radio. What do you think? Cheers.

I stand corrected. I think Australia is one of the first countries to go with DAB+. It's vastly superior to DAB which is all we get here and which is shipped with some Cowon and iRiver players.
