I don't know anyone who is actually using digital radio. Is it just me who is completely underwhelmed by it? Radio is the background noise in my life. Something you put on when you want the silence broken but don't want to actively listen. If I want to actually sit down and listen to music, I have my CD/MP3 collection. Aside from that there is on;y the news, and frankly I don't think I need digital high-quality to listen to the news bulletins, so I haven't put any time, effort or money into digital radio at all.
So, am I the only one thinking like this? Am I one of Australia's luddites? Have I missed something?
