It's on TuneIn and miniDSP Selection.
If you like that try WGBO-HD2.
Big fan of RSJ. Thanks fuzztone for the tip on WGBO.
Can anyone make the comparison of a good ol fashion  FM tube tuner against one of the current streaming units?
Just curious. I have the luxury of good reception, so no desire to stream.
Radio Swiss Jazz has a dynamic presentation.
At times well most of the time you sense compression...but make no doubt about it as your ears settle in or get used to it..it is fine i deed...however coming off your tube tuner I doubt you will be satisfied.

As with so many things in audio, it depends, in particular on the quality of the stream itself. There’s no way FM can compete sonically with Tidal, Qobuz, or even a Radio Paradise FLAC stream. FM tends to fare better when compared to something like Spotify or Pandora, but of course it also depends on the sonics of the FM station you’re using as a benchmark. There aren’t too many fine-sounding FMs these days, at least in the US.

There are still some things worth listening to on FM - at least where I live - so I keep my Mac tuner in the rack. But I’d never spend that kind of money on a tuner today. (It cost me $2,000 around 1980; that’s the equal of about $6,500 today.)
