Perhaps pop music is no more exaggerated than the CD - I have nothing to compare. But 95.3-2 male announcers are unlistenably bassy on my carefully mic room-equalized music system.
As I've mentioned before, the most immediately obvious benefit of HD on an already high-class radio system is the extended bass. So, stations that are "gilding the lily" in bass come across as bass-heavy in HD.
So back to this thread, with pop content on music and booming announcers, 95.3 adds nothing to my Canadian radio listening opportunity.
