Subject: RE: Tech: Are CDs becoming obsolete?
Regarding Classic FM Steve. I have noticed that BBC Radio 4 is less clipped when compared on the same radio. Classic FM is better background music though, and for that, it'll do. I have DAB in the car, and both sound similar, despite me paying through the nose for a Bang & Olufsen upgraded sound system. Thank you bloody BMW.

However, my FM HiFi radio is better than DAB via the built in DAB on my amp, and the digital signal via my Sky box is somewhere in between and goes through the DAC from the optical output.

I have no hang ups over buying downloads, but as I said above, I tend to give CDs as presents.
