    FLAC Radio Stations

    I have a Squeezebox Touch connected to my home amplifier. Are there any radio stations available on their server that stream FLAC quality music?
    Would I need a Squeezebox Radio instead?

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    I added the ones that I heard about to my Radio Now Playing plugin.

      anything a squeezebox radio can play, a TOUCH can play. Check out FLAC streams from Radio Paradise. The "Radio Paradise" plugin makes it easier.

        Are you talking mysqueezebox.com or a local LMS ?

          Is the OP running LMS?

          On their server sounds like the Touch is connected to mysqueezebox.com?

              As stated above Radio Paradise and Paul's Radio Now Playing Plugins are great places to start.

              Also, this site seems to be updated from time to time. Some redundancy with above suggestions https://www.hiresaudio.online/cd-qua...nternet-radio/

                I believe Naim Audio has flac streams for other genres too

                  As Ronnie and @ktp pointed out, we don't know if the OP is running LMS or looking at mysb.com. If it's the latter, we should persuade him to LMS

                  Paul's Radio Now Playing has all three Naim stations, but here are the urls for the other two: https://www.hiresaudio.online/naim-radio/ There appear to be both http and https streams.

                  Note that I have found a few urls on this site broken from time to time.

                            have you got this one Brian ?



                            It takes about 12 seconds to load on my SQRadio

                            ronnie

                            I think it redirects to https as it does not play on mysqueezeboxdotcom

                              Just tried to load it as a favourite in LMS. No sound!
