Description of Issue

Audio cuts out when listening through the Vanatoo T0 speakers for several seconds, the time on the track continues to progress and then after several seconds music audio resumes again. This appears to occur with Quboz streaming or with audio files played from the Nucleus plus.


If this happens for me, about every 10 days, rebooting my router fixes it.

EDIT: Roon core needs ethernet connection.

You didn’t mention how your desktop computer is connected to your network, but if it’s wifi this is almost certainly network related. As @Jim_F mentioned, rebooting your router will probably help. If you are using wifi, try connecting the desktop via ethernet to see if this solves the problem.

I am connected via WiFi and will try a router reboot, and setting the desktop to a priority device - there is not currently an ethernet port near the desktop machine so this won’t be feasible in the short term. My Simaudio is connected via ethernet.

I will note, that I don’t recall this happening until I changed my speakers out recently to the Vanatoo’s. Maybe coincidence, not sure. They otherwise sound quite good for desktop listening.

I figured that was probably the case, but you could still test if you get hold of a cable that’s long enough. Hopefully the router reboot and priority setting will sort thongs out.
