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.

(hijacking slightly)

Thanks for that, Fr0g. Spent all evening listening to Linn Jazz and now added it to my favourites

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.

 

You're off by 11.2.

Pi is Pi whether you like cheese and onion OR salt and vinegar.

Whether it be your reality or mine it will equal C divided by d

Is this going to be another of those circular arguments?

RE: FM tuner vs. CD sound quality?

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...

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

I suspect it'll be more of a möbius strip, which is topologically the same thing... Smile

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.
