Internet Radio FLAC Stations

Unread post by Hemmo1969 » Thu May 10, 2018 2:08 pm

Hi,

Just dropped on this and thought I'd share. Great high quality streaming radio station playing a reat mix of some serious tunes from classics to quality album tracks (not full of chart pop crap) Its a station out of Canada who are streaming at 192kHz 16bit.

Amazed by how good it sounds, give it a try. First thing in ages that has moved me away form my usual 6Music sounds much more musical.

JB Radio-2 86
Toronto, Canada
192 kHz 16 bit FLAC

Radio Paradise still do not provide FLAC streaming on stationary equipment only AAC320
FLAC for now is only available on mobile - bit will come to PC soon apparently
Nothing to see here...

It's https://www.radioparadise.com/rp_2.php?#

and their blurb about FLAC:

"We are very pleased to announce our highest-fidelity stream ever. CD-quality FLAC audio is now available in our free iPhone and Android apps, and our apps for AppleTV and FireTV.

Next, we'll be bringing FLAC audio to our new web player (coming soon) and we'll make it available via other hardware and software players as soon as we can. Users of Logitech Squeezebox devices can access it via this plugin.

There is not currently a FLAC stream URL you can use for VLC, Sonos, Winamp, etc. The iPhone app requires iOS 11+ for FLAC, and even with that version it will not be available on some older hardware. The AppleTV app works on Gen 4 (Siri remote) devices only.

If your device or player can't access FLAC, you can still listen via our excellent 320k or 192k streams. Links to those streams are here."


I access it via my Squeezebox and their plugin.
