Norway to start digital switchover.

I sincerely hope that the UK does not even entertain the idea of abandoning FM.
I am sure that many many people shall be very sore at having to scrap their expensive receivers, including me, with an Onkyo system.
DAB in the UK is far from being close to the CD quality of FM, and almost ALL DAB stations broadcast only in mono.
Only the few DAB+ Broadcast in stereosound.
