Brian Urban asks..
What is the future of radio?
If HD Radio isn't the answer, what is?
From Peter Smerdon of Australia
One of my areas of concern is transcoding errors in digital radio (some people call it cascading - or duelling - algorithms).
What do you now do for outside broadcasts (remotes) in this brave new world of digital radio, now that we all have been driven to codec solutions for remote site connections?
Are artifacts proving noticeable?
Cruelly, human voice (which is the majority of content coming down the "line" from the remote) seems to expose more coding artifacts than other content.
Is aptx better, being ADPCM vs the other Perceptual Coders (MPEG LII and LIII and AAC etc)?
