Sorry, no. This is not a standard stream, so in MusicBee I also listen to the 320k stream. For the FLAC stream I use the plugin for Squeezebox Server / Logitech Media Server serving players on a PC, a Mac, and several dedicated devices around the house. I also use the Android app.

No worries, take your time. I'm just a thankful listener who would freak out to have RP in FLAC quality {#Notworthy}

To make my point clear. Most Hi-Res players are in their early stages and not that advanced. A simple url is what most people will want. So - I hope it's just not up there yet!? Every thing else would just make absolutely no sense to me. {#No}

Thanks for the info earthbased..... Flac  800+  VBR is good enough, we don't really need the cd rate of 1,400 . Many places where we buy music , we download it at 800 - 900  kbps.

This will amount to around 400 megs/hours
. ( average of 850 kbps)  if it's at 16 bits...

Dang, they sure are proud of those things! Ouch. The Finance Director would never sign off on that.

I'm looking for a rack-mount conditioner/protector, Furman is one common brand. I'd even get a used one and replace all the thyristors (?), whatever they are that sacrifice themselves to surges. A handful from Digikey might be $20.

I have a long wish list for the audio/video closet...

  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.

 
I see what you mean! You're right, our slow speed is fine until someone else wants to stream TV but it can't manage both. I've found with other lossless streams (such as Tidal) that download speed is not always a good indicator of reliability. A fast connection with poor latency can be worse - only way to find out is to try it and see. 
I always look for unlimited download contracts from ISPs!

My rural UK 'broadband' ADSL is only 4.5MB, but I can stream 16/44 FLAC from RP, and from Tidal, with no problem.

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}
