Yes, I listen to the one also, which I understand is from the Bible Society in Israel. I have a pocket-sized leather Hebrew Bible from them with Heb. NT. I've listened to most of the NT and all of Genesis in the Tanakh, as well as part of Exodus. However, I don't normally listen while I read the text, so I hadn't caught the mistakes you mentioned. Just wondering, could interference from Israeli Hebrew cause that? I understand from what I've read that Modern does stress some words differently from the Tiberian accent.

As for the BM site, perhaps the owner will add streaming in time. I understand he is still in process of doing the recordings. Last I heard, he had all of Tanakh done except for the Torah. Meanwhile, I encourage you to download a book or two and check it out. He also has some videos with text on screen with audio. I've listened to Psalms from his site and found it helpful.
