Hello humans.

I occasionally listen to online radio stations on winamp with no problem. I know the kbps before I load up the station so I accept whatever I get. Some of it is pretty decent quality.

But the website broadcasts of my local Houston radio stations always have a tinny sound to them, so I don't listen, which is a shame because I'd like to take advantage of having it on my computer with its sound setup instead of turning my stereo on.

Is there any way to improve this quality on my side, or is that just how everyone is going to hear it who listens online? I can't imagine anyone wanting to listen to it that way unless it's on small, low quality speakers played at a low volume. Like listening to it at work in a cubicle.

EDIT: This might be better suited for the Audio/Video section. My apologies if that's so.

Hi Charger.
What you hear is what you get. Stations using a very low bit rate stream produce low quality audio. There is nothing you can do on your end to control that. The stations need to clean up their act. :thumbsup:
