Green Best quality A green channel plays the music in the best way. It takes full advantage of the FM receiver in your B&O product. It doesn't get any better
Yellow Acceptable quality A yellow channel is acceptable and the sound is ok, but not as good as a green channel. Most people cannot hear the difference between a yellow and a green channel
