I've got a DAB+ FM Digital Radio Development Board from https://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/dab-da ... eshow.html

It's not plug and play though ;)

At the moment it's gathering dust as I live in a DAB black hole

DVB-T tuner using a realtek RTL2832U chipset have a raw adc data mode, that is used to tune FM and DAB with original windows drivers, but this mode are hacked some years ago, and since used a generic SDR interface. And cost less that US$10.
And have some software to tune DAB.

To add to the previous note, there is a guide for installation of SDR-J on the pi :

It works, after some fiddling with the config file - read the comments on the post.

p.s. It is suggested that at least a PI2 is needed.

You can also try this module:


which is plug n play and decodes DAB fully on the hardware
