IBM: Hot doggity -- it's HD radio!

Hot doggity -- it's HD radio!
Most people realize that satellite radio is a consumer option these days, due to the massive marketing efforts of the two existing services. But far fewer people know that a digital alternative to satellite radio, HD (for high definition) radio, is also up and running in most major markets in the US. The reason HD hasn't taken off yet is simple: while terrestrial broadcasters have already installed all the hardware to transmit the HD signal, the receivers are just starting to show up.

The last time I read a discussion on digital radio it was about how small a bit rate they could get by with. I admit it's been a while, but still quality takes a backseat. Limbaugh didn't sound like Limbaugh when they low-rated him a few years ago. Is quality still a real issue or are we stuck in an I-pod world?
