i've spent many happy days listening to the Absolute Radio decade stations in lossless FLAC format, but recently they began to get a bit unreliable. and then disappeared altogether. The links are still visible at http://absoluteradio.co.uk/listen/links/.

http://network.absoluteradio.co.uk/core/audio/oggflac/live.pls?service=ar points to http://icecast.timlradio.co.uk/absoluteradio.co.uk/arflac.ogg

Has the FLAC trial ended? Has it moved somewhere else?

Updated: I emailed them and they fixed it.

I hadn't heard of this site before, thanks for the link! Streaming FLAC sounds interesting for sure.

Tidal streams mostly FLAC too.
