Not sure what all the ‘flac’ is about… heh… ok, so in the past few days, I could not get flac to work on my iOS RadioParadise app. I just learned you need iOS 11.x to make it work. So I upgraded from 10.x…

Went into my closet, pulled out a bankers box full of old hi fi cables etc, found a pair or RCA monster cable umm, ‘patch cords’ and then looked for the Audioquest RCA to 3.5mm adapter. Plugged all that into my pre-amp and iPhone 6sPlus. Booted up the RP app, selected flac, and voila… done.

And, it sure does sound much better than the mp3 quality that RP streamed from inside vTuner via PS Audio Bridge II on my DAC… I would like to pull the trigger on Roon, not yet a subscriber. I too, would add, flac internet radio is a must have feature, just as Tidal and MQA have been.

If I want to elevate this game a bit further, plug my Chord Mojo DAC into my iPhone, and then the analog output into my pre-amp… No doubt that should improve over what I am doing right now…

to RP team... good job on moving to flac.... love it,

Pick up a gen2 AppleTv and go Optical out to the Chord, then redirect phone to AppleTV.  Hit ain't perfect but it works.

I would offer $30 on this https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ele/d/apple-tv-2nd-generation/6500464436.html
