Writing this it seems like a really nave question but Id appeciate
some help in knowing if this is feasible.

I dont have Broadband and living in the middle of the North Yorkshire
National Park am unlikely to ever get it. So my access to DAB radio is
through a Pure Evoke and a HauPPage DEC1000 What Id like to be able to
do is to feed the DAB output into my PC, encode it and play it out using
SlimServer. Am I in drifting into the realm of the unwell here?

You don't need to encode it, Slim & sb can both play mp2 files if you're recording them. If you're talking about listening to live DAB then you've got to find out how to stream audio from it, in dabbar with a wavefinder or PCI card then you set up a .pls playlist something like:

[playlist]
NumberOfEntries=2
Version=2
File1=http://server:8080/49825.mp2
Title1=Classic FM
File2=http://server:8080/49600.mp2
Title1=Radio 4

I'm sure it'll be similar with the DEC1000
