What do I purchase an Analog or a Digital tuner

I wish to purchase a tuner, since I understand that the future broadcasting will be digital I am looking for digital tuners like Humax...but I found that one of the best tuners in the market is Magnum and it is operating in analog. Some one may help to clarify this apparent contradiction?

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.
