Sound Quality Matters!
It’s simple, we know you want excellent audio quality, period! Why settle for anything less? That is why we use Orban-PCn! All of our audio is PCM Wave 44.1. We do not use any AAC+,MP2, or MP3 files, ever for music playout! We use light audio processing .
Most FM terrestrial stations, and yes even internet only radio stations, still “cascade lossy codecs”. Meaning they take their MP3 audio from their play out software then they re-encode to AAC+ or MP3 again. This is called “cascading codecs”. It is really, really bad for audio quality. And listeners like you can tell difference.
Look MP3 is dead, it is antiquated, and it makes audio sound horrible. Always has! Please stop audio abuse! Just our opinion =-)
A special “Thank You” to John Schaab from Modulation Index for all your help!
