Do you find it troublesome when you hear a radio advertisement and the audio is digitally compressed to what sounds like 10bps? It hurts my ears.
I was remarking to others recently about how our digital devices have saved us a lot of money but their audio quality is way down. My cordless phone demands that I turn the volume up if there is any sort of background noise because it’s so difficult to understand the digital audio. However, my 30 year old, avacado, roto-dial phone is easy to understand, even pleasant to use.
