What are everyone's thoughts on sound quality? There's no doubt that it is clear and crisp but I find it has a significant lack of bass. I don't know if that is related to the fact that it is connected via line in, or maybe because of my sound card.
Would like to connect an additional DAC (Wolfson), but the firmware has not enabled the I2S output (I have heard).
the bit rate on dab is worse than FM. Provided you have good reception on both FM will sound better. Frontier Silicon recommend 1uF - 10uF on the audio, I would have thought 220uF might dampen the noise and even distort it.
The epitome of Function over form and is probably the best Car PC in Europe.

The bit rate on DAB is 192 kBit/s on some channels, thats not bad !
With my old Radioscape module (RIP) the sound was wonderful (with the mentioned Wolfson DAC). I do not say that the sound is bad with the Venice, but it has a reason they have designed a I2S interface for an external DAC.
I think the sound depends also on the line in input resistance and the level needed.
If someone has a low level line in, the sound might be better.
220uf it too big...
1uf - 10uf is typical on any audio output,
i have seen some 33uf
but never anything that big, it will affect sound quality

Sun, Come shine my way
May healing waters bury all my pain
Wind, Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return To live again
DAB+ allows the use of the AAC+ codec (among others) and should offer superior quality while using less bandwidth. We should eventually get DAB+ in the UK - and at least the V7 on these modules is DAB+ ready.
