Plopped the FLAC stream URL into foobar2000.   Sounds good.

Incidentally, the FLAC stream in a FireFox RP web-player drops out every now and then.  That is rectified by bringing up settings and either clicking on FLAC again or temporarily moving to Ultra MP3 and then moving back to the FLAC stream.   The slide shows continues while the stream drops out.

OK. We have an experimental FLAC stream URL available:

http://audio-3.radioparadise.com:8000/flac


NOTES:

1. There is no metadata (song titles). It appears that we just can't do that. You can use our web player in 'track' mode to see what's playing.

2. This is subject to outages and glitches as we refine our setup.

Is there a plan to bring FLAC streaming out so I can play it through my LINN DSM? I currently play the 320kb streams which while fine, all my music on the LINN Kazoo player are FLAC and the sound difference is important.

I use a Mac Mini as the audio server and perhaps, will have to find a way to do a DLNA routing to feed the LINN via Ethernet.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 

We have a solution for that in the testing stages. Hopefully available soon.

thanks

where do I find the Mac version of the RP app?  I don't see it anywhere on the Listen+Apps tab.  Am i missing something?

Due to how the app is structured, changing the bitrate does not immediately take effect. It will take 1-3 songs for the change to be reflected. If you want to make comparisons, after you make the change, tap 'Live Stream', then 'Sync to Web Stream'.

 
Sorry to steal the thread but I have a similar question.  I'm using FireTV4K>HDMI>TV>toslink out>DAC>amp.  So as I understand it the FireTV device is doing the decoding?  I suspect it will downsample the stream to 48kHz.  So is it worth streaming at a higher bitrate?

The looping problem discussed below went away within a day or two, so thanks BillG for whatever you did! I've experienced a couple minor glitches since then: the FLAC stream stopped at the station ID twice, Sunday at the end of a full day of enjoyment and a day or two later after only an hour, but that's Situation Normal for internet radio.

New problem: for some reason the 320k option isn't appearing in the LMS plugin, only the FLAC stream and the 192k stream. I noticed this after an LMS upgrade. Uninstalling/reinstalling the plugin does not help.

Thanks Bill! I was stuck in a loop too, hearing the same four tracks and unable to advance out of them. Going to another app in LMS and then back to Radio Paradise helped briefly, until I realized I was I was stuck in the next four tracks instead. Switching to the 320k stream works OK for now.

I have just discovered Radio Paradise. Wow. 

I have a technical query that somone may be able to help me with.

I am am listening using the IOS app with an external DAC Audioquest Dragonfly through Bowers and Wilkins P7 headphones.
I have selected Flac as the output stream.

Does anyone know if the app sends the flac stream via the lightning cable,
or does the app convert the flac prior to sending to the lightning cable.

One thing I have noticed is that I cannot tell any difference between the lowest quality and the Flac stream.
However whivhever stream I choose the sound quality is superb.

Hopefully soon on Alexa-enabled Sonos products. Others probably not for a while (except through Bluetooth via one of our phone apps).

Correct - except that we don't currently have a PC (Windows) app. FLAC will be supported in our new browser player (currently in testing).
