The only problem is what they dont mention

Its broadcasting on DAB in 80k Mono and sounds awful. I tried listening to it launch (with Seek and Destroy by Metallica) and couldnt take more than 10 mins. I believe the stream is decent but that involves sitting by pc

Why they think people will listen to an 80k mono stream when lots complain about 128k stereo downloads..

As a side effect of them launching, Due to the national DAB multiplex being full, bandwidth has had to be taken off other stations - namely Planet Rock which has dropped from 112k stereo to 80k mono (and sounds even flatter than Team Rock) and Absolute 80s which has dropped from 112k stereo to 64k mono

So much for this 'if you care about radio you will go digital' adverts that are currently running

How can mono be the way forward. You only have to compare Kerrang on Fm in stereo to their DAB stream (64k mono) - there is no contest whatsoever

DAB - the future is mono
