+
+    <para>Then, decode the result with <xref linkend="faad2"/> and play back

+    <ulink url="http://www.drm.org/">Digital Radio Mondiale</ulink>, but
+    actually breaks the base functionality of the package (e.g., the resulting

+    <quote>spectral band replication</quote> technology. There are the
