lower the number, the better quality of the signal.
 Bit Rate: DAB allows broadcasters to vary the BIT RATE (or the amount by which an audio
signal can be compressed) depending on the type of broadcast. This enables the amount of
stations on a multiplex to be maximized. Speech and News are often broadcast at a lower Bit
Rate; music needs a higher Bit Rate for good fidelity.
