Kinda a newbee to this bit rate stuff but i was under the impression that Bluesound Bluenode2 was playing RP in Flac? When i check the diagnostic log it shows RP playing "RadioParadise:http://stream-tx3.radioparadise.com/aac-320" Can I play RP through Tidal  in FLAC? Can I play RP through Tidal in the BlueOS?

how does  bluesound compare relative to a straight PC-USB-DAC connection? 

 
I went from a mac mini to a W4S upgraded SONOS  connect which is close to the quality of a Bluesound and never looked back.  Do a search on "bluesound node vs PC"  and you will get a fair number of discussions (SteveHoffman , Audiogon) about people switching from PCs to dedicated streaming devices.

In my particular case and many others, when going digital out, USB is the least desirable option vs Optical or Coax.  There are lots of discussions out there regarding the amount of "noise" that comes off a PC USB out.

Once you get a dedicated streaming device like a Sonos or Bluesound I will bet like many others "you will never look back".

OMG - I have also been wondering (and bugging BlueSound) to integrate the BlueSound with RP's new lossless format. THIS WOULD BE AN AMAZING OPTION! RP is my very favorite radio station, but I will sometimes flip over to Tidal just so I can listed to the lossless selections there. Would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE if I could listen to RP in lossless format on my BlueSound (Node 2) device!

If we get to vote on this - I say YEY for sure.

The 320 stream sounds very good through my Bluesound Node 2 into my HiFi.  Nevertheless it would be great to have full fat FLAC. Any news on this?

 
I'm honestly finding it hard to believe the stream is anything less than CD resolution. But I haven't listened to lower resolution streams on my HiFi since moving from Spotify to Qobuz (now Tidal) several years ago. Maybe audio codecs have come on a lot since then?  

Really enjoying the music. Thank you for such a great station.

Will the Bluesound station be updated to the new FLAC stream as well as Alexa and other players?

Thanks for all the great music! 
When I first started listening to Radio Paradise I realized that you and I have very similar tastes and our music libraries must overlap quite a bit {#Guitarist}
