I’m on Comcast in Eugene. Have you tried sampling KEZI over the air to compare to Comcast?
During the digital TV transition KLSR had horribly mismatched volume levels when switching between local and network feeds. Local ads inserted into network shows had very low audio levels. Now they seem to be using some kind of automatic level adjuster that takes a few seconds to compensate.
So I’m poking around the AM dial and notice that all the music on KKNX 840 is off-pitch and off-tempo, like a turntable running too slow. How in the heck can that happen in the digital media era unless it’s intentional? Every song sounds off-pitch and too slow.
