    1. You have to go to the top of PS Audio's website and click the drop down menu labeled Community. Then click on the Ask Paul Video tab and it takes you to the Videos. If you click on the Facebook link it just takes you to audio only for some reason.

  1. I used to listen to digital radio (DAB) in the UK, but have switched to the internet equivalents. DAB seemed to be at 128kbps at best, and uses the mp2 codec. The internet shoutcasts are still 128kbps, but they use the AAC codec, which gives better, but still not really tolerable, sound quality. I class 192kbps and above as 'tolerable'

    1. One of my favorites is Audiophile Baroque based in Greece. They stream at 320 kB/sec. They also have Audiophile Classical. I get pretty good sound from that station. Also, Spotify can stream at 320 kB/sec and I get some pretty good sound from that source.
