What do you think of the technology http://www.drm.org/ ?

Do you think it will, either, improve or replace actual SW/LW/MW (AM)
bradcasts?

Will my future Sony ICF-SW7600GR be obsolete before actually buying it?

I think DRM will do little to give SW radio more mainstream appeal.  I
suppose most people dislike the selective fading and crummy audio oftentimes
heard on SW radio.  DRM is designed to fix that, and maybe it does, I don't
know.  But sync detectors are also designed to reduce those problems, but
people still seem to choose standard detector radios most of the time.  So,
whatever the dislike people may have for typical SW audio, they don't often
seem willing to pay the extra money for the radios which are designed for
better audio.

DRM can't fix the most annoying problems with SW propagation.  The fade outs
will become jarring drop outs and the no signal days will remain no signal
days.

I think DRM's improvements will be marginal.  It might turn very good,
reliable reception into excellent reception.  DRM might be most useful with
the cross border European broadcasters, assuming people start buying large
numbers of radios and the governments still want to pay for all that SW
broadcasting.

Sony will go on to some other SW radios long before analog broadcasting is
gone.

All DRM is doing is crapping up the bands. Dam thing takes out at least
3 channels a shot. Stupid lame over hyped technology. There is a right
way to introduce / adapt digital modulation to SW but this is not it.
The sooner it is dead the better.
