Are the BBC ever going to improve the quality of its internet streamed Radio
MY DAB radio gave up the ghost a few weeks ago and since my PC is essentially a media PC and connected to a DAC I decided to listen to the dab radio stations via the internet, I stick to FM for other stations. Overall the quality of the commercial stations are pretty good, Planet Rock streams in good quality wma and Absolute (aka Virgin) streams in a whole host of formats (aac, mp3, real, ogg, wma etc) at a variety of bit rates.
The issue is still with the BBC who still use 64kbs on realplayer which sounds pretty bad. I have read that BBC had planned to upgrade the service by July but it's now November and it's still the same. I know they've upgraded the listen again feature in Iplayer which is great but seem to be dithering with live streams.
Does anybody else know anything more?
