Flac 16bit/48Khz streaming internet radio broadcast

I came across this classical streaming station while searching out the net for new music enlightenment. I believe it is in an experimental stage and the only one of it's kind. It makes available 16 bit 48khz signal streamed. It does need a high bandwidth connection with your provider. I have this but it still runs out of buffer occasionally. Hopefully it is evidence of great things to come for those with limited FM broadcast available.

If they go for 20bit/48Khz feed then it would be even greater.

Miab,

This sound like a good news but what kind streaming is it? Do I need to use any special stream consumer to get it? I was looking in your link and I was not able to find any 16bit/48Khz feed. The tendency is great however if it was true. If they go for 20bit/48Khz feed then it would be even greater.

The bandwidth is there we just need the sources

Any player that recognizes .m3u file can be used. m3u file is a computer file format that stores multimedia playlists. It was initialy started as a WinAmp file type but since then it has expanded to be recognized and played by many applications. Off the top of my head I will mention XMMS for Linux and JRiver, VLC, Foobar, Winamp, and others for Windows. When you go to the above link select the FLAC under ČRo D-dur. I then save the cro-d-dur.flac.m3u file to desktop. I then can play the stream with a compatible player of which I am using VLC for investigative purpose for now.

I do like the idea of 20bit/48Khz even more and think it might be a possibility in the future as broadband has more than enough capacity to stream this. In the beginnings of internet radio it was very low byte rates but now 320kb/s is everywhere and now this Flac stream which max's out over 1000 kb/s. The quality of material or what they do to it in the mastering room is another story.
