Currently, '/electic-flac'. We'll be updating it soon, but that will continue to work.

Low = 32k, Med = 64k, High = 128k. All AAC. 

As noted, that app is no longer being supported or updated. Our web player is a much better bet.

SONOS Port:
Ordered one of these and should have it tomorrow. Everyone is aware that SONOS uses Tune In for some of their streaming and Tune In does not support FLAC.
The SONOS Port allows you to connect third party devices to the SONOS ecosystem. I plan to, at first, use my android phone to verify I will be able to play RP FLAC streams. Have been using the AAC 320.
SONOS does not go beyond 16/48 FLAC....

My MacMini (Mid 2010) on El Capitan, has decided to stop playing FLAC. ULTRA quality is the highest that will play.
My iMac (Late 2015) on Mojave plays ALL quality levels. So I assume my home network is OK.
MM is USB to Chord 2Qute ito HiFi system, iMAC is via a USB Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100 and into HiFi.

Any ideas ?

TIA

I stream flac through Logitech Media Server and for the past several days (and periodically over time) the server pulls a set of cached songs (normal) and then loops through it. Developers of the LMS add-on say they have seen this also and can't figure it out based on the tech they control. Is there anything about the RP streaming server that might be contributing to this?

Just wanted to add that I think it's rad that you support FLAC streaming. I'm a long-time RP listener (10 years?!) Every time I return to the site I see something new I like. The four column player UI is so great. (I find myself wikipedia-ing artists all the time!)

First time I tried streaming to my Chromecast Audio with the FLAC RP stream it just worked.

I'm using thecastnow package and command line to do this.

$ castnow http://stream.radioparadise.com/flac

…and we're live. Thanks for supporting this!

Not seeing that. Everything is up for me.

 
This is as listening RP from Europe (Germany). May be cache-related... hopefully, as nothing else is coming in, as of yet. ;)

The RP flac transmission is apparently about 1,000 kps.. Most RP CDs are ripped at 44.1  khz. I also use Deezer's 1,411 kps streaming service. Are the vanilla DTS and Dolby Digital codecs compressing the digital flac streams? Would having a sound card that supports DTS-HD Master with HDMI out make a difference to the sound quality (imaging, sibilance, etc) I'm getting through my 2.1 system?

Our FLAC audio is all 44.1, just like anything that's ripped from a CD. We don't use DTS, just (lossless) FLAC compression, which gets decided in software — so what your PC is sending out is just straight 44.1/16 PCM. 

That's such a basic function that I doubt highly that a different sound card will offer any improvements — though I'm sure that some audiophile types would argue with me on that.

Hi there,

Not sure what happened, nothing om my side for that matter, but for the last few days we didn't encounter any stutters/cuts in the music playing. We mostly listen to the mellow-stream. 
We enjoy RP!!

Hello Bill,
First of all I want to complement you and your wife with having Radio Paradise and your music choice. My wife and I love this music station. But, unfortunately there is a but, for a few months now we have some stutters on certain moments, mostly around 5.00 - 6.00 PM Amsterdam time zone. When they occur, the song is interrupted every 10 or so seconds for the duration of 2-4 seconds.
We use a Bluesound node 2. I first contacted them, but they refer to RP. When I look in the Bleusound logfile I notice distinct errors appear:  May 27 14:52:52 (none) user.info ./ms.pl: Controller::outputUnderrun Controller.pm (2745) streamId=418
Though the Bluesound node is attached through Wifi, I don't believe that is the problem, because I can play flawless high res music from my NAS and the Bluesound reports a good Wifi connection.
The stutering lasts mostly about 10 minutes, but it is very anoying.
Maybe it is some kind internet traffic-jam, as it mostly occures about 5.00 PM every day, I don't know. Does this makes any sence tot you? I read in other posts beneath that you advise other links to streams. Unfortunately I cann't use those in the Bluesound. But on the other hand the stuters we suffer from are in a short time-span. So maybe this a different kind of problem. I'm curious what you think about this.
Greetings from the Netherlands, Han Jeurissen
 


 

We're now connecting European listeners on Bluesound devices to a different server. Seems to be working well.
 
Thank you, it does indeed work well. Very happy here again!!!

Yes, it is streaming now, thanks, but now I notice that the stream content is different from the browser - I'm having Jethro Tull from the browser and Eliza Gilkyson from the stream (?)

I'm having trouble with all streaming. I noticed the flac streams were not available, but on Sonos via TuneIn nothing comes through. Other music sources play fine.

Plays fine at the site with the browser-imbedded player though.
 

Sorry about that. Meltdown on our stream source while I was away. Should be working now.
 
Confirmed! Sounds excellent, as always.
