Description Of Issue
Some Roon endpoints are strong, others are weak.
I have a bunch of different end-points. When everything is rebooted and clean, all is well. After a time of switching end-points, and sometimes grouping, the end-points fall into two buckets:
Strong end-points, that never refuse a Transfer Zone connection:
- Devialet Phantom via AirPlay; Chromecast Audio; Chromecast Ultra 4k; HomePod
Weak end-points, where sometimes the time counter moves and sometimes it doesn’t, but music doesn’t play and I get continual “An audio file is loading slowly…” and track skipping:
- Auralic Mini*2, via either AirPlay or Roon, via USB to either Peachtree nova300 or Rotel 1592; iPhone XS; 11" iPad Pro.
It is super-annoying that the cheap-as-chips Chromecast end-points are bullet-proof, whilst the expensive Auralic and Apple end-points are not.
Am I alone in this?
