    My word! How did we get so far off topic?

    Once we got over the 16-bit accumulators, sample rate conversion isn't
    all that big of a deal, particularly in relatively non-critical
    applications. Most of the time that I listen, I'm in my home office
    listening on Radio Shack Minimus 7 speakers and I don't expect high
    fidelity. When I send the audio to my living room speakers, I find it
    to be a bit on the bass-heavy side, but not objectionable. Mostly I'm
    thankful that I no longer have to listen to the "underwater" sound of
    the low speed stream that I used to hear when I had only a dial-up
    connection.

    Why not volunteer to go across town and clean up the on-line audio
    stream at your neighbor KBCS? They must be feeding their audio server
    right out of the on-air console without any leveling and nobody
    bothers to look at the meters. The level from song to song goes all
    over the place, and I often hear clipping (usually on the left
    channel). I don't recall that it's that sloppy over the air, but my
    over-the-air listening is pretty rare (I don't live there) and mostly
    on the radio in the car.
