Gapless streamer

 

I'm looking for a replacement kitchen radio, so it doesn't need to be the best in terms of sound quality.  What it does need to do is receive Radio 4 and stream my music collection (saved as flac files) gaplessly.  I thought the Roberts Stream 83i was the solution, but it doesn't support gapless playback.  I then thought about the Pure Evoke Flow, but it doesn't support flac!

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Keith

Sonos Play:3.

£260 for a Play:3 would be OK,  but then you have to spend £280 for a control!

Not to mention that they don't make the controller anymore.

Squeezebox Radio. You can get two, run in sync and handling L an R channels for stereo.

The Squeezebox radio doesn't receive Radio 4  - it's Wifi only.

 

So there doesn't appear to be one!

1) Your existing smartphone (iPhone / Android / Windows) or iPod Touch or PC / Mac can control Sonos for free.

2) You can get Radio 4 through the Internet, on Sonos as well as Squeezebox.

My wife doesn't have a smartphone and she will be the primary user.

Likewise she insists that it can receive a broadcast of Radio 4, not a stream.

The Denon is much too expensive.
