I use a dedicated MAC Mini for Roon and there is No Networking involved here. My MAC Mini feeds a USB to my Audiobyte Hydra DDC that sends an AES signal to my Yggy DAC from there to my 8801 Marantz Pre-Pro…I have about .5 TB of music files stored on my Crucial 1 TB SSD Mini. ~ 700 albums…I also use my desktop MAC to administer my Convolution filter in Roon for Room Correction.
The dropouts eventually stop…I cannot figure out why…until the next Roon Update…sometime the dropouts reoccur and other times they don’t happen at all .
Thanks for letting me know that information, I am wondering do the dropouts subside when you disable all DSP functions? Can you note the exact local time in your country (e.g. 12:17PM) that the next dropout occurs at? I’d like to take a look at diagnostics for your Core when that occurs, it might not provide the reason as to why but it might give us some clues of where to look next.
