    This one is probably only available to UKers (or naughty VPN users), but the BBC are currently running a trial of FLAC over DASH, using the classical station Radio 3.

    It needs a recent Firefox (51 or greater) to work, and seems not to work on the Linux version right now (I'm running it in a WIndows VM), but it's otherwise pretty decent.

    It's a limited-time trial currently, so give it a listen if you are able to, and like classical music. It lives at:

    Note that the browser features that it uses are quite new and unpolished, so it does break and need reloading occasionally.
