Radio Paradise?!
« on: June 10, 2021, 01:12:48 PM »
If this is available to you via streaming or whatever, give it a listen. There are four different ‘stations’- Main Mix, Mellow Mix, Rock Mix, World/Etc Mix.
Through my streamer (Bluesound) it is available in MQA, the hi res format that Tidal uses. It is also available as a 44.1 stream. I don’t know how the website sounds versus how I’m listening. I’m not that versed.
I’ve been listening for a few days and it definitely offers music you might not otherwise hear, and sounds very good doing it. I’m especially smitten with the ‘World’ feed- after several hours my wife asked if I could “put on some music I know”. Well, you can lead a horse to water…

Been listening to RP for years, first on my SB Touch then on Bluesound Node 2i.  Also have the app on my phone so I can stream it (via Bluetooth) into my car's sound system.  I mainly listen to the Mellow Rock mix.  VG SQ.

Another really good one for super chill relaxed jazz (commercial free) is "The Jazz Groove".  Excellent SQ.

I don't see it on the list of radio stations available via Roon.  :(

Too bad, it looked interesting.

Which station do you refer to?

I didn't dig deep but if I google real quick on "radio paradise on roon" I see articles discussing them together.

I see the same thing when I do the same google for "the jazz groove".

Ok,I found it and it was easy to bookmark a URL or an internet radio station in Roon, but unfortunately when I got to Radio Paridise I found that their MQA stream will only work with BluOS devices. Roon endpoints are limited to a 44/16 stream. So I will just have to listen to it that way for now. RP says that high res direct streams (not MQA) will be coming in the near future.

Well, I hope you get some enjoyment and something new out of it, though I must say the MQA sounds mighty fine. In fact, it kind of reminds me of fip.fr with better sound in my system. https://www.audionervosa.com/index.php?topic=8129.0
