I'd buy a streamer like a Squeezebox and listen to the online stream (320 Kb). It's exceedingly good quality. That and many others. The Linn stations are also top-notch.
There are now hundred of stations at high bit-rates.
And you'd have no "need" to connect to your computer.
Thanks for that, Fr0g. Spent all evening listening to Linn Jazz and now added it to my favourites

You'd better give up now Manic, otherwise you'll have the entire rank & file of [LINK REMOVED - house rules] lining up to 'educate' the living daylights out of you.
Not the entire rank and file y'know...
The problem with reality is that not everyone wants to take part. Me either on a Friday night, but that's another story.
Subjectivity is a lovely thing, so long as it doesn't make objective claims (and objectivity is useful so long as it doesn't disregard subjectivity)

323Kbps is lossy and is not CD quality (1400Kbps), so is not going to be, in any way, better in quality than CD.

So reality is only an objective thing? Or does it only make sense as an individual's subjective experience? For example, red is red, but if you're colour blind, your red is not my red.
I'm not starting a fight btw, I'm just interested...
Very good. (re Chebby's joke.)

Ah, but "seeing red" is what causes all the arguments, locked threads and bannings!

I suspect it'll be more of a möbius strip, which is topologically the same thing...
...but it does go on to infinity and beyond ....so I just prefer to eat it!
...and how does it taste *to you*?
...better than a Mobius Strip, which is too twisted for my liking!
Intersting topic, when i have a bit more time i'll give it a read through
Or trying to discuss something about which there can be no discussion. fr0g is entirely right. But you prefer whatever you prefer, and may not be able to hear differences, that's fine. It doesn't matter weather the argument is circular or rhombus shaped, it's still absolutely correct and if otherwise perfectly intelligent people can't see it then...
So inceredibly tiresome.
