Radio Paradise Streaming is available on my Aurender Music Server


I recently discovered that I can listen to Radio Paradise on my Aurender N10 Music Server by going to their Internet page and look for Radio Paradise.   I asked Aurender if this this link streams at 320ACC.  In other words, is Aurender using the 320k AAC (US): http://stream-dc1.radioparadise.com/aac-320 or something else.

The Radio Paradise web site reports "Next, we'll be bringing FLAC audio to our new web player (coming soon) and we'll make it available via other hardware and software players as soon as we can”.    Once above web player is implemented (no dates yet), I asked Aurender if they would add another RP link for FLAC streaming on the Aurender.   This mean the Aurender would stream Radio Paradise using FLAC.

The Radio Paradise Web site is :

AAC stream Direct server link is:320k AAC (US): http://stream-dc1.radioparadise.com/aac-320

Radio Paradise reports that "Unfortunately, no.  Our FLAC stream requires software at the receive end, so it is a significantly more complex thing than just adding a different URL.  Once we (RP) have our API ready for public use, we'll be supporting third-party apps for devices like yours (people have already developed apps for a couple of others), but that will require more than a bit of development on their part.  We're looking for a way to simplify that, but don't have anything nailed down".

The above makes an Aurender implementation more complicated and expensive for them to build.   I will advise Aurender and see what they say.
I am streaming Radio Pardise on the Aurender using the Internet radio tag.  I cannot believe it but the screen says “16bit 44.1kHz.  Other stations say 24bit.  That cannot be correct, can it?  I like Radio Pardise for its music selection and no ads.  It’s fun to listen to.

The Aurender uses Shoutcast for the radio stations. SHOUTcast DNAS stands for Distributed Network Audio Server. The DNAS, also known as "SC_SERV," is a software program that is installed on a network server. All listeners that wish to tune into a SHOUTcast stream connect to the SHOUTcast DNAS. The DNAS is also responsible for updating the SHOUTcast directory with now playing and other information relevant to the audio stream.
Sound quality seems good.  Thanks.
JRiver is now streaming Radio Paradise in 11/44 flac.
Aurender confirms that they are using the 320 kbps Radio Paradise stream.  I like Radio Paradise for easy its listening and for background music.   

"Radio Paradise plays different styles of pop and rock music, but occasionally other genres from jazz to classical to electronic music and world music. All of the styles are DJ-mixed, often with passages of several tracks played back-to-back (and faded between each other), chosen for their suitability or thematic relevance as opposed purely to random playlisting. While Radio Paradise is a for-profit business, it does not broadcast commercials but is financially supported through donations from listeners. It is known familiarly as "RP"".
