That's because BBC national radio internet streams are usually quite good, though I've never tried Radio 1. It's a different story if you listen to ILR however. Usually I listen to Smooth Radio. Where I live in NW England, the FM signal for Smooth absolutely wipes the floor with both the internet stream and DAB. I'm not even sure if the Smooth DAB stream is even stereo.surreyfrog said:Quick update - I have access to a communal FM aerial, so I have bought the naim adapter, hooked it up and had a listen. I'm hard pressed to hear a significant difference between the FM broadcast of radio 2 and the internet stream.
I might consider 'moving on' if the alternative to FM wasn't crap. My post above refers.Alantiggger said:*crazy* folks just cannot move on at times ... *blush* *music2* *blush*
Each to their own, I guess....... keeps it all nice...*drinks*
The vinyl/digital comparison is why I was curious about FM vs digital streaming, and I was wondering if the same comparisons applied. My take is different from yours inasmuch as I prefer the reproduction from a well-engineered LP to the CD equivalent, but of course each to his own. Anyway, as mentioned I don't hear much difference between FM and digital internet radio, certainly not in the same way I've noticed differences between vinyl/digital. In case you're interested, I find vinyl more dynamic, CD/digital a bit more revealing but dryer sounding.Alantiggger said:IMHO, Digital Radio wins hands down.
For RM Think- LP'S/45's etc. Whereas For Digital think -- cd's/memory sticks with music on them..... Digital EVERY TIME !
It's the REASON as to Why The World is moving ONTO---- Digital Sound, It's because it is far better. (vinyl and FM Radio are now becoming 'OLD TAT !'
