About the Uncompressed Stream
KEXP is the first radio station in the world to offer uncompressed audio on the internet.
You'll hear KEXP's broadcast in high-fidelity audio, with sound quality that is actually better than our FM signal. In fact, it's nearly CD quality.
- Regular internet radio streams at around 128 kilobits per second
- MP3's average about 160 kilobits per second
- KEXP's uncompressed audio streams at 1400 kilobits (1.4 megabits) per second.
To access it, you'll need Windows Media Player, version 6.3 or higher. You'll also need a high-speed connection such as:
- Broadband DSL
- Broadband cable
- Ethernet (in your workplace, for example)
Now you're ready to check out 24-hour uncompressed audio – only at KEXP.org!
