    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!

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

    Is the OP running LMS?

    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/

    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.
