I know this should be posted somewhere like AVforums (bunch of cocks) but DAB 'the new way' is all bullshit!
I live in line of sight of my local DAB transmitter ( for local people) and I cant get a bloody thing unless I put up with the bubbly underwater sound that DAB has when in a tizz...
DAB in the UK was initially designed for the car with transmitters for the major road networks. It was then mooted as a platform for high quality broadcasts for stations like Radio 3 (which broadcasts at almost CD quality on FM).
Then came the money men - more and more crap was stuffed onto DAB, the 'CD quality' sound was dropped in favour of 'look how many stations you can get!' and the quality has sunk.
Its not my radio thats the problem, just the *****ing way its broadcast.
AAAAAAAAAAAARGHH! rant rant rant...
Anyway - the irony is that the UK DAB system is now woefully behind what is available and current DAB sets cant be upgraded.
f**k DAB - I'm gonna listen via FM and the interweb...
(BTW Dont get me started on Freeview!!!)
Rant over, off on a cycle ride (I still do ride bikes now and again...)
