I guess that the new platforms will make this problem go away by doing exactly as you say — hosting the audio and compressing to their own specs. In fact, I’m sure that there must be competitive advantage in providing some kind of adaptive audio that’ll adjust to the listening circumstances (or just a choice of settings). Radio 3’s uncompressed loveliness is hopeless on my commute!

I’m a trustee at the amazing Poppy Academy Trust, a social media editor in radio, a poet and a volunteer at Watford Refugees.
