I suggest Radio Paradise FLAC. It has excellent sound quality, no commercials and a wide selection of music.
Radio Paradise is a listener-sponsored Internet radio station that identifies itself as an "eclectic online rock radio" station. The channel differs from most FM channels and other Internet stations in that the music played is chosen by human DJs to form thematic relationships in smooth arcs. Also, music is not limited to a narrow range of genres, but instead represent great variety. Radio Paradise plays different styles of pop and rock music, but occasionally other genres from jazz to classicalto electronic music and world music. While Radio Paradise is a for-profit business, it does not broadcast commercials but is financially supported through donations from listeners. It is known familiarly as "RP".
Calm Radio has 200+ channels of many different types of music. Sound quality is acceptable.
I added the Radio Paradise FLAC Steaming URL link to my Aurender Music Server. I received this link from RadioParadise and it is a FLAC stream via this URL. The link is:
For Aurender users, I go into the radio tab, click on the + sign and enter the URL. I named it Radio Paradise FLAC. It works perfectly.
If possible, please see Qobuz FLAC streaming. This is an excellent source of music and it is excellent.
LOL... the Bluetooth connector to the Cambridge came in this evening.. I just couldn't resist. .. so of course I plugged it in.
All of my CDs have been ripped to Apple iTunes on PC. From there a copy exists on the Galaxy's 256 gb micro card. I use Double Twist's app on Android for music... generally only used with headphones when I travel via air.
At the moment I'm listening to decent quality music (I'll have to AB to CD player) from my phone's copy transmitted via Bluetooth to the Cambridge while the phone is charging on a Qi wireless charger.
Is the nest HD search for Bluetooth and such?
OP here for the last time...... I have 20 really good (HD) stations in preferences now. Changed one this AM after they played the Same Blake Shelton song 5X in 5 hours. The Cam,bridge apps not the greatest, at least on old Android Galaxy S7 Edge, but very serviceable with a bit of experience anyway.
As I wrote earlier I changed the power cable and went for some interconnects that match my system and those changes greatly improved the naturalness and fluidity of the sound. I may or may not report back around the 500 - 600 hour mark as I intend to run it another two weeks and see where it settles. So far more hours equals better more natural and less digital sound.
I'd be certain there are better alternatives for more money up the high end scale... and I'm including the cost of power and IC cables in that statement. OTOH, if your foot is tapping and your head is bobbing and it sound great to you, on all twenty tagged favorites where can this go?
