I havent heard of Humax, but the Magnum tuners use all analog circuitry, but have a numeric "digital" readout for the frequency. A Tuner with a numeric readout lets you know exactly what station you are tuned to. As far as broadcasting, all FM radio will be analog for the forseeable future. Several attempts have been made to broadcast in 'digital' have fallen by the wayside. An exception is XM and Sirius Sattelite Radio, which is a digital signal.
