RadioParadise High Fidelity Streams

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:57 pm by mike

So RadioParadise turned off their 192K MP3 stream in favor of  Octoshape, a peer-to-peer Windows Media Player plugin to get RadioParadise in 192k format, unfortunately I experienced quite a few drop outs and choppy sound.    Possibly there aren’t enough users yet to get critical mass.  Interestingly, Comcast took down the FAQ which claimed they don’t interfere with P2P traffic.   The FCC came down on them for doing this last year, but with everything they are doing to fight the Net Neutrality movement, I wouldn’t put it past them.   I switched to the 128K ACC+ stream with the Orban plugin.   No drop outs and the quality sounds pretty good.   Note that ACC+ received a much higher quality rating than MP3 on the MUSHRA score.
