You can connect to our stream using Shoutcast2 or Icecast2
The Shoutcast2 stream is at: https://blastfm.net:8000/live and the Icecast2 stream is at: http://45.33.5.23:9000/24hr.mp3

Information about the streams and what's currenty playing can be found at: http://45.33.5.23:8000 for Shoutcast2 and http://45.33.5.23:9000 for Icecast2

We provide two streams because some people may prefer Shoutcast2 over Icecast2 or the other way around, personally, I prefer the Icecast2 version.

We can provide much higher quality streams, we use MP3 format because the file sizes are fairly small on the server, although at 320kbps they are still fairly large. We can use a much higher output quality such as FLAC but the file sizes are much larger and require much more disk space. In order to have all FLAC files we would require a much larger server, in terms of disk space and possibly CPU and RAM.

We are also amplifying the stream by a factor of 2.2 after using MP3gain on the server to set a uniform replay gain on all of the files. This gives us a loud, powerful stream without audio clipping, well, that's the idea anyway.
