Question

What are "clusters"?

Answer

Some digital radio stations don't use a single stream but a group of them on different URLs - a cluster. All the URLs in the cluster are playing the same stream. Clusters allow a lot of users to connect to one server. ANR allows you to select between picking an URL in the cluster manually, or attempting to connect to each URL in turn. It's just a strange Shoutcast thing so don't worry about it. ;)
