Radio 3 has announced that all its programmes are now available in High Definition sound for those listening live online.
People listening to the station’s programmes live via the Radio 3 or BBC iPlayer websites will benefit from higher audio quality and a wider dynamic range. However, listeners will need a good-quality sound system to appreciate the extra clarity and detail in the sound.
Roger Wright, controller of Radio 3 said: ‘It’s wonderful that listeners can now experience all our programmes in even better sound quality when listening online. I hope as many people as possible take the opportunity to experience and enjoy the enhanced audio quality of HD Sound.’
Highlights of the forthcoming season on Radio 3 – that can now be enjoyed in HD Sound – include the modern carols to be broadcast each morning from 18 December, the King’s College, Cambridge Nine Lessons and Carols service and the station’s Mozart season in the New Year.
