Hi,

I listen to the Radio Paradise FLAC streams on my
Raspberry Pi with RuneAudio software. The audio quality is fantastic!
However, I and other RuneAudio users have found that lately the metadata
in the Main and World mixes are not in sync - the song titles and cover
arts do not match. The Mellow and Rock streams display the correct
metadata. Is this a known issue?

Here is an example: https://paste.pics/AB1H9

I understand that the FLAC streams are experimental but I have also found that the Main Mix AAC-320 stream has this problem as well.

Peace,

That was very rapid response.  Thanks a lot!  All good now.

The difference is very subtle. On most music, I'd call it effectively inaudible. 320k AAC is very high fidelity. 
 
Yes!  The 320k AAC stream sound quality is truly amazing.    Nothing wrong with the smaller footprint too.   Terrific value.

The other day, RP played a song I know well because I own the music and play it often.  I tried to see if I could tell if there was a difference in sound quality in the 320k AAC stream and the FLAC or 320k MP3 files I rip from the CD.   Within seconds I gave up because I knew I would have to stop everything I was doing, don headphones, carefully focus, etc., in order to discern a difference.

The purpose of FLAC is to provide a bit-perfect copy of the original music in compressed form, together with metadata. The FLAC stream broadcast by PR is not a bit-perfect copy of the original CD track, is it? So if the data is processed at all, AAC seems more than adequate to me. Neither version is going to be exactly like the original.

Yes, they work in the browser but for some reason minimserver on my QNAP do not like them anymore. I responded to your post on the Naim forum. Thank you for the suggestion, the icy8 streams work for me now. Very happy again. :D

Are these urls still valid? Thanks so much for all you do to keep these going. The SQ is superb. Don't want to go back to 320K. ;(
Can you confirm they are okay? If they're still good the problem lies elsewhere. thanks for everything you do. Sound quality is awesome.

Oh another thing I forgot to mention.   the metadata does show up in  vlc,  but not with https.

It doesn't seem to be  supported in foobar2000 yet.   Sort of hit and miss on what players work.   Depends on how they implemented their icy-metadata support.

There was a configuration issue affecting UK.
Should be able to access the flacm links now.

Non meta data links working fine and I’m streaming it as we speak
