Here is an intriguing product that is starting to get people to convert off some pretty serious and expensive power generation stations.  I will be watching this technology closely and if I find one on the used market may snap it up.

My rural UK 'broadband' ADSL is only 4.5MB, but I can stream 16/44 FLAC from RP, and from Tidal, with no problem.
 
  I was talking about the number of gigabyte that will be downloaded if i listen to the Flac stream for 5 hours. I actually have a 60 megs/sec download speed, so I'm not worrying about the stream being fluid, just curious to know how heavy it will be.  If the stream is at 1,400 kbps, you might start to hear some hicups with a 4.5 mb download if someone else is also watching movies or playing a multiplayer game.  We'll see soon enough.

Still nice...how do you like those focals...are those the ones with the beryllium tweeters?  I remember listening to a pair of those a few years back and was impressed.

I do like them I demoed them side by side with a pair of Sonus Faber (in my house) and like the Focals overall.  The Sonus Faber sounded better with pure acoustic (strings and wood) music.
I ran B&Ws for years but sold those to a buddy.

The 926 has a aluminum/mag tweeter with a Poron Urethane suspension. Some people think this tweeter is to harsh. The next step up, Kanta Series, you get into the BE tweeter.  They had not even come out with the Kanta series when I bought the 926 but I proly could not afford the Kantas anyway.

The guy i bought my Velodyne from was selling it because the same reason, I think he shared a wall.  I have often thought if I ever downsized to a condo I would have to dump my system and retool for headphones.{#Music}

Everybody has there own needs but its funny what has happened to me over the years.  I went on a trip with some guys recently  and there was about 5 of us in this condo.  One of the guys brought this little blue tooth speaker box and fired that thing up, after about 10 minutes  I was thinking "Jesus turn that piece of sh!t off!!"

As a new member it's nice to see a topic related to music at #1on the RAFT.  I thrive on music because of its ability to connect people.  Nice to see political opinion fall out of the primary focus.

My system includes:

B&K Ex 442 amp

Marantz DV9600 cd/video
Dual CS5000 turntable
Dynaudio X38 speakers
macBook through a Bel Canto DAC for streaming

The only pieces new are the Dynaudio's (actually, they were a barely used returns to my local audio shop)...the rest i picked up on the used market - serviced the amp and turntable, and both are better than new. 

And i concur, take a step up from streaming s$#t through your phone to some cheap bluetooth speaker....or whatever.  Go the used route...there is a lot of good equipment available that can be had for a fraction of the retail cost.

Thanks Bill, I'll keep an eye out for a CCA solution.

I've also tried to put LMS on a Synology NAS but I can't get it to work. I can only instal LMS version 7.7.6, and the RP FLAC stream seems to need a later version than that.

Sorry. There isn't a stream link for FLAC. Not at this point, anyway.

 
  Hi Bill...  

  There are some streams at 700 VBR FLAC , they sound almost as good as a 1,400kbps stream . No real need for a 1,400 kbps Flac stream in my opinions, but those who own a good sound system , with ASIO,  kernel streaming or Wasapi would be very happy to have a nice surprise :-)

 So if someone want R.P. in Flac , they can connect a USB DAC to their android usb , apple or tablet and output with the DAC. 

  At least , give us OGG/Vorbis at 320 vbr , or OPUS 320 vbr . ( Variable Bit Rate)   AAC lack some bass and richness.

Hi Bill. Excited about flac. I’m currently using Roon to send out to my 2 separate streamers (Naim and Auralic). Will it be possible to play Flac in the future using this system?

Cheers and thanks again for doing all the DJ’n for me.

The FLAC stream sounds incredible!!! Streaming from my phone to the Sonore Ultrarendu via Shairport. Sounds much better than the 320. This is a welcome addition to anyone with a world class speaker or headphone setup. Thx RP!!!

Is there any chance that we might see Opus streams in the future? A 96Kbps Opus stream would be awesome.
