Going through Shoutcast and tuning into a few random radio stations.
Some of them were quite good and sounded brilliant. Some of them however did not.
Digging a bit deeper and looking on their shoutcast DNAS server pages the reason for the poor audio quality on some of the stations was immediately clear.

I visit the Spacial Audio forums and Facebook pages every few days just to see what the latest complaints from users are.
It seems several users have had issues activating SAM Broadcaster & in some cases this has meant the DJ missing their regular radio show.
“The activation system is a huge black box from a third party called Oceans Software and not much is known about the ways it works and detects licensing issues”
Activation issues should never happen with radio automation software, A DJ needs the software they are using to do their job.

I look at the SAM Broadcaster feed on Twitter most days to try and see if anyone is still offering illegal cracked copies of the software.
This morning someone shared a link to a video on YouTube with a link to a cracked copy of SAM Broadcaster.

I keep seeing tweets on Twitter where DJ’s are having to apologise to their listeners because SAM Broadcaster crashed on them during a live show.
“We’re experiencing issues with SAM Broadcaster so unfortunately today’s show is being cancelled. Sorry everyone”
DJ’s & station owners shouldn’t have to put up with SAM Broadcaster crashing on them just as they’re about to go live on the Internet.

Anyone who has ever encountered this problem with SAM Broadcaster knows how frustrating it can be when this error message appears in encoders window.”Unable to send data fast enough Encoding paused until buffer clears”
