OFCOM have always undertaken to be an evidenced based regulator, so it was very pleasing to see the outcome of some research they have done as part of their Future of Radio consultation.
They asked radio listeners about their views on Sound Quality of DAB Radio. Needless to say, 97% of the population either had no view on the issue (3%), or thought DAB sounded just fine to them (94%). That leaves 3% of the population how aren’t happy with it.
James has done a very good dissection of the numbers, so go and have a look there for more info.
In the meantime, I’ve no doubt that the vocal minority will continue to be vocal, but at least we have empirical evidence that they are unequivocally in the minority.
