Hi Kimberley,

I would have to disagree with you.  Format 4 books are by no means hi-fi
quality, even at audible.com, of which I am a member.  The sound is often
quite hissy and scratchy even in some cases.  It is certainly good enough to
read a book, but compared to a CD book bought in store, Audible's sound
quality is junk.

All the best

Hello Andrew.  I am a member of audible.com, and have downloaded many format
4 files with wonderful sound quality.  I have no idea what the problem could
be.  I would think format files in the UK would be the same as format 4
files in the US? Smiles!
