"......Titus II DRM receiver
A pre-order page is now online to register interest in the new Android
powered Titus II DRM receiver. The radio which also features shortwave,
medium wave, FM and an SSB mode is expected to cost $100USD....."

Let me guess... effectively an RTL dongle / HF converter with a Pride of China Android tablet?

Sorry if I sound cynical  ;D

Are there many stations that broadcast in DRM? I know AIR does.

I don't think DRM really had a chance to be popular. Not
many DRM capable receivers have been available.

Huh... I've actually did put in a pre-order on the Titus II over 4 years ago, and haven't heard crap for at least 3. So, has anyone heard anything about this portable? It would still be a nice novelty to have, but with tech marching on, it will soon be ancient history. If you ask me, this project is a loss.

Apparently, they have some newer, yet sketchy, info on the Titus II.    https://www.rtl-sdr.com/is-the-titus-ii-portable-android-tablet-shortwave-sdr-close-to-release/      At this point, tech has marched-on to where there are better alternatives. I say, stop teasing us!
