How to listen to 107.1 The Peak over the internet:
If you are connected to the internet, you can most likely listen to 107.1 The Peak without issue if you are in the continental United States. If not, you will need a VPN and an IP address that is based in the continental USA.
If you are on a PC, just go to our website at http://www.1071thepeak.com. (Where you are now!) At the bottom of all the pages there is an embedded player. Just hit the play button and off you go.
If you are using an iOS device (Apple iPad – iPhone – iTouch,) go to the App Store and download and install the FREE Peak App. Search “107.1 The Peak” or “WXPK” to find it. You can also just use a web browser.
If you are using an Android device, go to the Android Marketplace or Google Play and download and install the FREE Peak App. Search “107.1 The Peak” or “WXPK” to find it.
If you are using a Blackberry, we strongly suggest the free app called “TuneIn Radio.” In our experience it has been the most stable and full-featured of the apps available. Download and install that from the Blackberry App World. Once installed, search for WXPK or 107.1 The Peak and then save us as a preset/favorite.
There are hundreds of apps that will allow you to listen to our stream directly – from iTunes to VLC to a myriad of iOS, Android and Blackberry apps. There are also many internet enabled radios that will allow you to listen directly as well.
First, you’ll need one of these web addresses:
HE-AACv2 – Stereo: https://playerservices.streamtheworld.com/pls/WXPKFMAAC.pls (this one is MUCH better sounding)
Next, you’ll need to make sure your app or hardware will decode HE-AACv2 or aacPlus v2 if you want to use the first address. HE-AAC is an audio compression format that has become the industry standard because of its great sound and low bandwidth. Think of it as the modern successor to MP3 (which is now 30 years old.) In our experience, almost all modern hardware and software will decode aacPlus. You just need to set up a preset with the above web address. Each app and hardware is different, but the approach is the same.
If your device just won’t decode the first stream, try the second one which is tried and true MP3. Mono and not as good sounding but some Peak is better than no Peak at all, right?
