    Does anyone know of any black coloured DAB tuners? All the ones I have seen are silver and will look totally out of place with my other components.

    Thanks.

    Thanks - but I suspect Tag Mclaren will be out of my budget:(

    I have noticed though that Cambridge Audio produce a DAB500 available in black or silver from Richer Sounds. Anyone got one or have any experience with it? Any good?

    Also came across this site DAB shop - anyone any experience with them?

    TIA.

    I wouldnt personally advocate spending any more on a DAB tuner than something like an entry level PURE or Cambridge Audio model, since DABs quality it already so poor in comparison to FM, you cant polish a turd.

    Personally I would have to disagree :eek: , buy the best you can afford.
    I have a DAB tuner and the quality of the sound is excellent most of the stations I listen to. I very rarly listen to FM anymore.

    Maybe it down to the station rather than DAB as a whole.

    Heh!! I've heard DAB likened to digtal TV, plenty of channels, 95% of which are crap!!! Standard FM tuners offer better sound quality (with a good signal) but DAB wins, like CD before it, on it's hiss free sound, and better ergonomics.

    The Pure DRX701-ES comes in black. Having recently heard it, its not bad (at all!) - for DAB.


    Another good buy is the Arcam DT-81 but that is expensive at around £600. The TAG's about £2000!!!
