Yeah, that CD quality sound line is a complete joke. Anyone with a serious home stereo setup and D* via DD 5.1 knows it (or even in the XM/Sirius standalone receivers). It's an amazing piece of puffery. Unfortunately, OTA where I live in Philly isn't going to happen. Just too much interference and I don't want to put another antenna on the roof, so I just ignore it. I only wish it was an option.
