    Question Radio (Paradise) .flac streaming?

    Hi,
    with "BLUSOUND" OS (node2i) this fabolous radio station stream in .flac (lossless) and a CD-icon will also show this important sound-feature.
    My question is:

    with Lumin U1 and the Lumin 13.0a APP (last update) all radio stations are playing through "TuneIN" and the Paradise Radio stream with AAC code. (lossy)

    So... is something wrong with my set-up?


    Thanks, Luca

    ...so my set-up it's correct I see.
    If it's OK, is there a chance you will talk to your programming team?
    Thanks.

    Iím playing Radio Paradise through my modified Sonos Port into my dac. Iím not 100% sure but I think Iím getting a cd quality stream. Sounds awesome to me and I love the mellow mix stream. RP is so good, I felt compelled to donate. Iím not sure if creating an account and having sent money entitles me to anything special. But, OMG, most of the time when they pick the music, itís like a revelation. So many wonderful songs that either Iíve never heard or absolutely love.

    As a workaround, please another app then AirPlay to Lumin.

    I think you are using BLUSOUND APP (the same for Sonos?) and if you see a CD-icon it should be a loss-less quality!

    Same like you. I did it... Just 5 USD but... they are very good people with the "right intentions"... closer to my... (and your) soul.

    I donít see any visible sign of the quality. My modified Sonos will upsample whatever itís fed (up to cd quality) to 24/96.

    OK; seems you don't use Blusound APP.
    Try if you can use it with Android/iOS.

    BluOS Controller - App su Google Play

    BluOS Controller on the App Store

    They're free.

    I can’t seem to get my Sonos components recognized by the BluOS software.

    Lumin supports TuneIn, but it seems that Radio Paradise is not available as flac via TuneIn. In TuneIn app, flac is not presented as an available choice in stream quality.

    Smile Re: Radio (Paradise) .flac streaming?

    Well, here some (I hope) useful links:
    Radio Paradise

    As I can see, the .flac is supported only by VLC and (?) players; TuneIN does not.
    I don't know how the BLUSOUND APP stream in "CD" mode... is it VLC operated?

    Anyway I hope Lumin will use the best streaming option possible. (AAC 320k)
