New streamer, new to streaming

Hey folks,

This is my first venture into the realm of streaming and am seeking advice getting started.

I got a Hegel H190 a few years ago and just now decided to use the built-in streamer.

I have been streaming to it from my laptop via USB and appreciate the absolute convenience, education, and exposure to unlimited sources of music in so many genres.

Now, in a different listening room, my H190 is very close to the router. I connected an ethernet cable, did the firmware upgrade, and am ready to try the internal streamer.

Before getting into Roon, Tidal, etc., is there a simple app or online station I can try first? Something I can open up in a browser and have it stream to the H190 from the network?

Hope I am phrasing my questions properly! I know nothing about streaming.



You can AirPlay to H190 from iPhone or iPad as long you have one of these devices and they’re on the same network with your Ethernet wired H190.
Radio Paradise app is all you will need. The sound quality via Airplay won’t be the best but will give you an idea. 
Other than that, Roon, Tidal and Qobuz all offer free trial. Roon is great if you have music ripped to hard drive and use Tidal and or Qobuz as it basically manages all your music and libraries. 

+1 for @lalitk ​​@mahler123 's suggestions. FWIW, I'd entirely avoid Airplay if there's another option.

So I am able to stream from local files. Tried mConnect and see the options for Roon, etc.

But I don’t see how to connect to RadioParadise.

Does this mean I need to subscribe to Roon or Tidal, etc. to stream RadioParadise?
