Wired is reporting that the FTC has approved a digital radio standard, which broadcasters can begin using immediately. Digital radio claims "CD-quality" sound, but remember that similar claims were made about 128k MP3s when they were introduced.
Even if digital radio broadcasts are only able to muster the quality of medium bit rate MP3s, the RIAA could get testy. You'll need a new tuner to listen to digital broadcasts, but I can't imagine that ripping songs from the airwaves to MP3 will be that difficult.
