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.

Great news! Does that mean that it will be released as a firmware update when tested?

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: 2019 Radio Paradise FLAC Streaming – Bryston BDP-3

May 2019

Hi Folks,

Radio Paradise recently started offering a music streaming service which is now available in a LOSSLESS FLAC file at 44.1/16Bit resolution.

I am pleased to report that we have a BETA for our Bryston BDP-3 Digital Player to access these files. Normally radio streaming is 128K or 320K but this Lossless FLAC streaming sounds superb. 

Here is an example of the Manic Moose GUI playing a track from Radio Paradise.

The software is in BETA form now and can be downloaded for those that want to give it a try on their BDP-3. (Please email Bryston for instructions – jamestanner@bryston.com)

Will this later be available on the BDP-1 as well?

I will ask Chris but I think any of the BDP's will work.

I'll try to find some time to test this, I have a BDP-1 still running in my home office I can test it with.

I haven't been spending much time in my home office these past couple of weeks but i did start the stream and it did play for roughly twenty minutes before I headed off to bed.

I tried it again on the BDP-1 and it didn't want to start streaming, so it might be a BDP-2, 3 and Pi only feature.
