DRM receiver

Press Release

At IBC on Friday 12th September the DRM Consortium launched the first DRM AM model receiver produced in India for India and for global use.

The AV-DR -1401 designed and produced by Communications Systems Inc under the brand name Avion Electronics of India (www.avionelectronics.in) is a digital DRM SW, MW, as well as analogue AM and FM receiver with stereo reception, offering some of the extra features that make digital superior to analogue: more choice in perfect sound (MPEG audio), multimedia applications and local interactive text and media (Journaline), automatic tuning by station, not frequency, emergency alert capability etc.

The receiver was unveiled at the first DRM ‘Pit-stop’ on Friday 12th September at the Ampegon stand (Hall 8: D35). It was subsequently showcased on Saturday 13th September at Thomson Broadcast, the second ‘Pit stop’ event (Hall 8:C35) and at the “tell and show” event organised by DRM Consortium member Nautel Ltd (Hall 8:C49). At their session ‘Building to a Billion and Beyond’, Nautel representatives and other Consortium companies from India and around the world gave an update on the digital project in India and participants could sample the excellent sound of the new DRM receiver model.

Ankit Agrawal, Director of Communications Systems Inc which produced the new model was thrilled with the interest created by the DRM radio: ”Our receiver performed very well and its audio quality, extra features and ease of use received a lot of positive feedback. IBC participants particularly liked the extended battery life of the receiver and its emergency warning capability. With small adjustments we plan to make the receiver available for order in the next few months.”

Ruxandra Obreja, the Consortium Chairman, says that: “We are very pleased with the exciting announcement on this new Indian receiver. With sufficient orders and support it could do very well and start the receiver ball rolling demonstrating that global, green and extremely cost-effective DRM is not just the future of digital radio but a reality for listeners now.”

Other DRM members present at IBC are: Digidia, Fraunhofer IIs, GatesAir, RFmondial and Transradio.

Updated the list
I have hopes for the GR-227 adaptor and they need to include AMstereo in the tuner so I can convince the 3 stations in my area to flick on the stereo switch which hasnt been used since they were installed

Receiver List

Hi Ralph, thanks for the update to the list of DRM radios. I am looking forward to the PantronX Titus2, lets hope the apps will be available!

I am not currently active due to computer problems, the Dream/Winradio computer keeps crashing, perhaps I should really be using one of my 5 radios I have from your list.

Happy New Year to you all.

The current state of DRM including RECEIVERS. It's a good overview and reflects a healthy prognosis for global recovery of DRM even though AIR as the state broadcaster in India is the primary adopter of DRM so far. DRM is finally beginning to benefit from all the research and activity over the past 15 years. The naysayers are clearly losing.

Listen to DRM live via AIR's Bangalore transmitter on the SpyNet:

Thanks for the link. When Terje (Digger) moved house/country I inherit his Morphy Richards.
Despite being a DX-er and DRM-listener for many years I can't understand how this Rx is " it's still considered one of the best DRM receivers ever released." I find it truly awkward to tune to any station with this Rx.
Now back to the SDR Airspy HF+
