I am constantly amazed at the music I've never heard before. Radio Paradise is such an awesome source of interesting music and one of the best as far as SQ too.

    I agree, they play a lot of the music I normally listen to and I'm constantly hearing stuff that makes me go over to the Touch to see who's playing. I have a similar setup as you, a Touch digital in to a CA 840C and it sounds good for mp3. When I check the Touch for bit rate I see it's at 128 kbit/s. I see on the Radio Paradise website they broadcast 192k as well. I'm not sure how to set the higher rate on the Touch, anyone know how?

    I'm also a big fan of Radio Paradise. There are separate URLs for the different bit rate streams. I just used the TuneIn URL functionality on Logitech Media Server, then save as a favorite. You can find the URLS here: http://www.radioparadise.com/rp_2.php?#name=Listen

    Thanks!

    After seeing this yesterday, just added it to the SBT this morning.
    This is a regular radio station? No - [gasp] - genre selection?!?
    How spoiled I've become...

    Looks like a pretty diverse playlist.
    Does higher resolution playback now - 320k aac, and 192k ogg vorbis/mp3
    I disabled signatures.
