BBC Proms 320 kbps AAC experiment

The BBC has launched an "experimental" 320 kbps AAC Internet stream carrying the Proms. The stream will be available until the Last Night of the Proms on Saturday 11th September, and the BBC would like people to listen to the stream while the Proms are on, then to provide feedback by filling in a short online questionnaire.

As it is an extreme rarity for the BBC to care about the audio quality it delivers on digital radio, let alone experiment with a bit rate as high as 320 kbps, would urge as many of you as possible to have a listen to this stream and to fill in the online questionnaire afterwards.

The 320 kbps AAC stream can be found here:

And a BBC Internet blog about the "extra high quality audio experiment" can be found here:
