I agree, I read about the bandwith and yes, it's a shame that quality will be sacrificed for squeezing more stations in. In fact some stations that started out with a good stream have reduced their output quality to allow more of their own stations. I believe Absolute have done this, with the original good stream for their main station now using a reduced rate to allow for their 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00's stations.
I knew about this lack of audio quality (for the audiophiles) before i bought the car DAB, i just wanted variety and more choice. I like BBC R6 and R4Xtra for example and in evenings will listen to radio more than TV.
I've had DAB in the house for about 5 years, so it was frustrating not being able to listen to favourite stations in the car!
