The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra's Digital Concert Hall

I wonder what bandwidth and what rate they will support. I was not able to found any information about it. The MET live broadcasts are sonic deserters and I am afraid that it will be the same with Berlin. Not to mention that most likely they will let only Sir Simon Rattle to lead Berlin for live broadcasts – wish is not so exiting to begin with.

Live dsd stream
fiogf49gjkf0d
I really wanted to enjoy the digital concert hall but their sound quality is not up to par. Last time I checked it was 256kbits. However, there has been recent developments and they have streamed a double dsd (5.6mhz) concert.
Sadly I have missed this performance as I was on a business trip. Still, it gives me hope. I really look forward to real high quality classical concert streams. It may be wonderful like listening to high quality radio broadcast (or even better/different)
Did anybody have the chance to listen to the dsd stream on April 11? How did you find it?

Heard about it but couldn't listen

Since I don't have a DSD DAC, only a SACD player, there was no way to listen. There's a link to a description of the event by Gramophone. It sounded more like an operational  test than something they expected to work flawlessly. It was supposed to be available in On Demand at the BPO Dig Concert Hall for awhile. I tried the regular Digital concert hall some time ago and couldn't get it to stream without occasional dropout. I have a very good connection but not a topmost one so maybe that is what is required.
