Hi all,

.....The latest DRM-capable, multi-standard consumer products will arrive at the DRM booth at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam this week. At the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin last week ST Microelectronics, Kenwood and Fraunhofer presented a fully working prototype of a DRM receiver.
