Re: Why when Radio is already free?
>What's so bad about DAB?
- Batteries in portable DAB radios don't last very long
-The codec used in DAB doesn't sound very nice
-In areas of poorer reception, the sound of DAB breaks up in a way that is more unpleasant than poor FM
- It is fragmented across countries
- The price of DAB receivers has never come anywhere close to that of FM radios.
Since current DAB adoption is currently poor, we may as well skip it and adopt streaming of radio content: The sound quality can be better, and it offers thousands of stations, not just dozens. We are not all at that stage yet, but we might be close in a few years.
