I'm considering buying a used BDP-1.  Is this able to play the RP flack stream?

I don't think so.

I asked this question of James (who is a fan of RP) who referred it on to Chris but no response. It does support 320kps using a URL that James provided on this forum. I suspect it needs a small app to be built to support FLAC.

I have streamed RP FLAC to the BDA-1 using Apple Express and the SQ is excellent.

RP is now a very powerful internet station so I hope we can get Bryston to fully support it.

Chris - comments?

Thanks Tezza,
Apparently RP's FLAC is not a stream. Im listening to the FLAC version using a macbook running jRiver.  Its wayyyyy better than the 320.  I will not make the move to a BDP-1 if it cant play the cd quality version of RP.

 Tezza and I are asking for a yes or no.  Shouldn't be that difficult.
