We have set up some new streams

Now you have the choice. There are now 64 kBit/s stereo and mono streams available also on Roland Radio. If you like to listen to Roland in a very good quality use the 128 kBit/s stereo MP3 stream. Same Quality but mono: 64 kBit/s mono mp3 stream. The next is the 64 kBot/s ogg vorbis stereo stream which is much better than the 64 kbit/s mp3 stereo stream.

Check out the “Listen to” Page on our Homepage for direct links to the streams.

New Streaming-Server-Address is stream.rolandradio.net:8000

Switched from Stereo to Joint Stereo

To avoid bad sound quality we switched today the stereo streams (ogg & mp3) from true stereo to joint stereo. This saves some bandwidth by having another mixing of the left and right channels as before but increases sound quality as the 128 kBit/s now are split in half for 2×64 kBit/s for left/right channel but are combined to increase quality. If you want to learn more about joint stereo you can check the Wikipedia entry about audio engineering: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_(audio_engineering)
