Monday afternoon, Jan 12, we upgraded to 128kbps streaming. There will be a noticeable difference in the sound quality.
I had asked for some information on making the switch and instead of replying back, they (Live365) just went ahead and flipped the switch to 128. I had to scramble to convert all the songs in this week’s show and get them uploaded. One or two may sound choppy and I apologize for that.
So if 128kbps is better than 64kbps, why not go even higher? The short answer is there really isn’t the need, you really wouldn’t hear much difference unless you were wearing headphones in a really quiet room.
Hope you enjoy the upgrade!
