I'm not sure what audiophile concerns might be an incentive to buy a 
digital radio...from the way I understand it, the fidelity of present 
analog FM exceeds the digital quality, which is roughly the equivalent of 
an .mp3 file.  Now if you're one of those who considers mp3 to be "CD 
quality", the money might be better spent on a good audiologist.
