Glorious digital radio
Posted May 25th, 2009 by debritz
Test transmissions have been going on for a few weeks, but today apparently marks the official launch of digital radio in Brisbane. Only a few folks with deep pockets have receivers yet, but my sources say the improvement in sound - especially for AM music stations such as 4BH and 4KQ - will be worth the expense for audiophiles. The other advantage is that you'll get extra stations not available on the AM or FM bands. As I mentioned on 612ABC a couple of weeks ago, you might pick up a set cheaper by buying online than by going to your local retailer. Although, as Spencer Howson pointed out, you must make sure you get a compatible DAB+ set.
