Apparently, Sonos does not support FLAC streaming at this point. Actually, I suspect that it's TuneIn that's the problem. Custom station URLs are played via TuneIn, not directly by the Sonos player.

I have contacted Sonos at least a half-dozen times about partnering with us to add RP as one of the available music services. That would bypass the TuneIn issue, and would let us add our alternate channels and the skip function also. Frustratingly, they've never even bothered to respond. 

Feel free to pass the above quote along to Sonos tech support. You won't be the first, but maybe someday they'll be willing to work with us.

Bill ... FYI. The flac stream crashed here (UK) at around 15.52 BST. I'm using Clementine player on Ubuntu 18.10.
Hit play again and all's good in the world!

When it is down, it is down but otherwise it seems to work quite well and is very stable.  Been playing continuously with no drop outs for the last couple of hours (Win10, foobar2000).

NOTES:

1. There is no metadata (song titles). It appears that we just can't do that. You can use our web player in 'track' mode to see what's playing.

2. This is subject to outages and glitches as we refine our setup. 
 

If you tried this earlier today and it was down, try again.

Geeksplain: we had a net outage here at RP central and I had neglected to 'nohup' one of the processes.

Thanks Bill ... great news!  I'll be running this stream via two platforms :
1. Windows10 running Foobar2000
2. Ubuntu Linux running Clementine. 

Currently listening to the stream on the latter and sounding extremely lush!  Will report back with any observations.

Thanks!  Nick

Plopped the FLAC stream URL into foobar2000.   Sounds good.

Incidentally, the FLAC stream in a FireFox RP web-player drops out every now and then.  That is rectified by bringing up settings and either clicking on FLAC again or temporarily moving to Ultra MP3 and then moving back to the FLAC stream.   The slide shows continues while the stream drops out.

Is there a plan to bring FLAC streaming out so I can play it through my LINN DSM? I currently play the 320kb streams which while fine, all my music on the LINN Kazoo player are FLAC and the sound difference is important.

I use a Mac Mini as the audio server and perhaps, will have to find a way to do a DLNA routing to feed the LINN via Ethernet.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 

We have a solution for that in the testing stages. Hopefully available soon.

thanks

where do I find the Mac version of the RP app?  I don't see it anywhere on the Listen+Apps tab.  Am i missing something?

If you are using a web browser to play RP, you will not see the FLAC option. You need the RP app - there are versions of this for Mac and PC as well as mobile devices.

Sorry to steal the thread but I have a similar question.  I'm using FireTV4K>HDMI>TV>toslink out>DAC>amp.  So as I understand it the FireTV device is doing the decoding?  I suspect it will downsample the stream to 48kHz.  So is it worth streaming at a higher bitrate?

The looping problem discussed below went away within a day or two, so thanks BillG for whatever you did! I've experienced a couple minor glitches since then: the FLAC stream stopped at the station ID twice, Sunday at the end of a full day of enjoyment and a day or two later after only an hour, but that's Situation Normal for internet radio.

New problem: for some reason the 320k option isn't appearing in the LMS plugin, only the FLAC stream and the 192k stream. I noticed this after an LMS upgrade. Uninstalling/reinstalling the plugin does not help.

Thanks Bill! I was stuck in a loop too, hearing the same four tracks and unable to advance out of them. Going to another app in LMS and then back to Radio Paradise helped briefly, until I realized I was I was stuck in the next four tracks instead. Switching to the 320k stream works OK for now.

I have just discovered Radio Paradise. Wow. 

I have a technical query that somone may be able to help me with.

I am am listening using the IOS app with an external DAC Audioquest Dragonfly through Bowers and Wilkins P7 headphones.
I have selected Flac as the output stream.

Does anyone know if the app sends the flac stream via the lightning cable,
or does the app convert the flac prior to sending to the lightning cable.

One thing I have noticed is that I cannot tell any difference between the lowest quality and the Flac stream.
However whivhever stream I choose the sound quality is superb.
