I am on my third 1500 and would not be without it..(i've lost count of the number of Sennhieser PX100's that i have got through..the cable breaks after about six months)...
"Pure" are also magnificent in terms of their after-sales service...i got a retrospective warranty replacement after giving serial number details to the company.
As far as DAB goes..put it this way,i will be unhappy when F.M is switched off.
My limited technical knowledge leads me to think that the digital signal,even in the South of England,can never be strong enough,due to it's nature,to be as strong and as high quality as F.M..(?)
In an area where the signal drops-out,DAB becomes unlistenable..you certainly cant listen on a train,and i found that my "old room" in my parents house gave me no signal at all.
Every time you walk under a bridge,tall tree,or underpass,you lose signal altogether,or at the very least,suffer the awful,highly annoying "Soup Dragon" effect interference,that characterizes DAB.
With the weaker signals,just the position of your body,how the headphone lead (antenna) is moving or how you hold the set effects reception.
Digital,it seems just doesnt go "round corners" like Frequency modulated analogue.
This,i feel,is a resounding endorsement of the "Hi Fi ethic". Digital signals are like a series of steps."on off on off"...Analogue a continuous wave...

Chord’s QBD76 HDSD is a top-class converter that delivers a brilliant sound from a well-built package. It has plenty of visual appeal, too
There are more talented rivals on the scene, but the veterans are enduring greats
Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
