Yes, the UBitx is a nice piece of engineering. Hats off to the developers.
For myself, I don't listen to AM broadcasts for their music content rather I listen to the BBC and other foreign stations to hear views from abroad.
A long time ago an EE friend of mine introduced me to reel to reel half speed masters and I was a convert the moment I heard the difference. I still remember how startled I was by what I had been missing. The tapes of course are pretty much a thing of the past so I had to make a choice between vinyl or a digital format such as the Sony/Phillips Super Audio CD. I chose the later and it offers some nice advantages over vinyl in that you can turn compression off and experience the full dynamic range of the music being played. Of course no format will sound good if the sound engineering is lackluster so buyer beware is always a consideration prior to spending upwards to $30 on a purchase.
It's too bad in my opinion that quality in music reproduction has seemed to take a back seat to other interests and it is certainly an area where newer is not equivalent to acoustically better. I am just thankful that there are enough audiophiles to allow quality to still be available.
