TuneIn classical streaming through node 2i


For those that are frugal streamers, what are your favorite stations for *classical*, quality and program wise? Wouldn't mind hearing about other genres jazz, classic rock fwiw.

Potpoueri: Does anyone know what default stream the bluesound uses if multiple quality streams are available? Does anyone have to plug and unplug bluetooth devices over and over again to connect? Also, my node crashes when I select a different stream- anyone else have this issue. Otherwise very happy with it.

Back to the original question.  I'm partial to Kdfc because that is what I listened to before the internet. Not so much with Tilson Thomas. Seems like classical audiophile has good quality. In addition to KDFC,I also like Minnesota public radio for both quality and programming.

Thanks

It was my local classical station and I have stuck to it.

I think we started something with the word "frugal" here. :)

I'm Roon now though. Previously Logitech Media Server.
Radio Venice for   Bootiful Classical Musica
There's Steinway & Sons free streaming:http://steinwaystreaming.com/steinway/streamHome.jsp

All the best,

Classical 102 stream.
MDR Klassik.
Klassik Radio Ingolstadt.

On BluOs menu...
Tune In - Music - Classical - By Location - Europe - Germany
Then select a station as Favorite.

I don't think there is a default stream on Bluesound.

Does anyone have to plug and unplug bluetooth devices over and over again to connect? Also, my node crashes when I select a different stream- anyone else have this issue.
No, never. Are you using a 5gHz router?
Try going back to the BluOs home screen and then select the stream again. Otherwise, it's time to contact Bluesound support.


Nonoise,Thanks for the link!
These stations seem to play interesting music:

Radio Suisse Classic (Switzerland) - non-bombastic orchestral music

Soma FM Sonic Universe  (USA) - anything goes that's jazz or jazz-like

The Jazz Groove (USA) relaxing jazz (but not much "smooth jazz")

Jazz 24 (USA) excellent all-around jazz station
Boston radio station WCRB for classical.
I was told by BS CS that most Tunein stations streams are MP3 at the source, regardless of final bit rate quality.

Does anyone know of specific stations that surpass this quality?
Radio Paradise streams at 44.1 / FLAC quality, however it's not classical. 
Tunein claims up to 320 kb plus.

Bluesound says the highest quality reliable stream is chosen automatically.

I've also tried Deezer and Qubuz on the Node 2i.  With those hi-rez streams I find myself listening to the gear and getting bored.   With Tunein and Spotify I'm constantly drawn into the music.  Backwards of my expectations.
