    How does the newer Pace receiver compare to the previous model?
    Has build quality suffered or performance (including PQ +sound)?

    Recommended digiboxes for Europe


    The digibox generally recognised as the best for Europe - especially those parts of Europe well away fom the footprint epicentre - is the Pace 2600C1 and its recent successor, the Pace DS430N. Both models look the same (see photograph below), but the DS430N has a faster processor. The 2600 is generally considered to work better in a weak signal area and this model should be considered for countries such as Cyprus, Greece, Southern Italy, the Canary Islands etc - where is signal is exceptionally weak. Although most installers in Spain use the DS430N, you may think about buying a 2600 if you are in a difficult area such as the coastal region around Cartagena and Valencia, or one of the Balearic islands, for example. If you live anywhere in France, choose the DS430N over the 2600, as it is unlikely that you will benefit from the very low-threshold level of the 2600.

    The Pace 2600C1 is no longer available to buy new and it's low signal threshold makes it highly sought after and therefore more expensive than a new DS430N.
