Re: freeview box

The Humax is a long-time favourite of ours, but i'd also strongly recommend the TVonics DVR-150 (which has a 160GB drive) or its big-brother DVR-250 (250GB).

More details at the TVonics website

If you're not desparate to buy right now, we're also running a test of PVRs in the October issue, which comes out August 23rd. Within that test, we'll also be reviewing the Wharfedale-branded version of the TVonics DVR-250, which is set to be an Argos exclusive when the new catalogue comes out.

Brands represented include Astell&Kern, Audeze, Audioengine, Canton, HeadsUp, Flexson for SONOS and SONOS

Re: freeview box

Are there any Freeview boxes which provide hi-fi quality sound?

I have heard that Freeview should technically provide better quality sound than DAB.
As the Freeview box would be acting as the front end for the hi-fi, it would need to provide a quality sound.
I ahve a Cyrus amp and have seen that Cyrus provide a DAB tuner.
Is there a Freeview alternative?

Re: freeview box

 Not from Cyrus, I'm afraid. As a rule of thumb, any Freeview box with conventional stereo phono output sockets suggests someone cares a bit about the sound quality, but the best results I've had are with STBsz with digital outputs and a decent DAC or a good AV receiver.
