System is Marantz CD6004. PM6004 and KEF Q500s. If I wanted to add a tuner (DAB/FM) to listen to classical broadcasts what would people recommend?
A professionally installed roof aerial first. (Unless you have a good one already.)
In a 'tuner as record player' metaphor, the aerial is the turntable and arm. The tuner is the cartridge.
Good aerial plus + £25 used tuner from ebay is better than £1000 tuner with indoor ribbon aerial.
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 32GB • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
A good outdoor aerial is ideal. Anywhere high, however, should suffice. Only fairly recently have I had one externally. Before then I had it in the loft to good effect.
After that I'd look at Marantz T-7001, Arcam T32 or the Denon DAB-1800.

Living on the ground floor of a 10 storey apartment block makes an external aerial kinda difficult. I do get good signal strength here in the centre of Birrmingham, my Pure Evoke doesn't need to have it's aerial extended, but do you think that having to rely on an internal aerial rules out using a serious tuner? If I do use an internal aerial is there a recommendation?
As always, thanks for your help.
