Perhaps you're not keeping up here? The HE AAC decoder will already be
in the receiver if the receiver supports DRM.

Now you're just talking nonsense. You usually have a pretty good
command of the English language, but you've definitely got this wrong.

Really? You've never told us that before, Kristoff.

Do forgive me for understanding what words in English actually mean
better than you Bonne.

I'm afraid you haven't got a leg to stand on here

Given the fact that the DRM consortium and the WorldDAB Forum are now
cooperating together, and that DRM is being extended up to 120 MHz and
it looks a safe bet that it'll be used in a lot of countries, why
wouldn't DRM be supported?

You amaze me. If this was a thread only about DRM then you wouldn't say
any of this. You're an imbecile. Get your head out of your arse man.
