Airplay from Music app skips beginning of songs

When I stream music from the Music app on my iPhone via AirPlay and a song ends and goes to the next song the first 3 seconds of that song cannot be heard then it begins playing perfectly fine from that point on.
Using iPhone to RaPi 3 to topping d30 dac to preamp. Dows it with Ethernet and WiFi. The qobuz app does not have this issue. Any ideas?

Also, it only happens if I stream lossless from the iPhone on the music app. When I switch streaming to AAC files this doesn’t happen. Also, using a MacBook Air and streaming lossless to the RaPi there are no problems. Qobuz and tidal apps don’t have this problem streaming hi res files.
