I agree with the general thrust of this post, but I think the numbers are too high. Try a 48k stream on dialup, for instance. Sorry, 32k is more like it, 40k tops.

Also, the quality point was already pretty good at 64kbps using Windows Media 9 or Real Audio 8 and later for stereo music. AAC Plus outperforms them both, but for most listeners, the difference will not be that noticeable. But the main point -- that streaming formats are improving at lower bit rates -- is correct.
