Audio broadcasts over the Web have been a joke, with the sound arriving in bursts like a speaker with a dodgy connection. But the latest RealAudio 3.0 player, which attaches itself happily to your Netscape or Microsoft browser, claims to offer acceptable stereo sound across a standard 28.8Kbps connection and CD quality over an ISDN link. A beta version of RealAudio 3.0, which offers claimed CD-quality stereo sound over a standard Internet link, can be downloaded from Virgin Radio's site at www.virginradio.co.uk. Virgin broadcasts live over the net in RA 3.0 stereo, so you can try it out while you are at the site. Further details are at www.realaudio.com.
