Beginning of the track is cut

When I select a song and press “play now”, the first 1 or 2 seconds of the song are cut or intermittent. I am using a USB to the DAC. Is the lag normal?

I’m guessing you have the same problem as here:

And the good news is there’s a fix on the way!

i’m experiencing the same thing, but only when I use JRiver’s WMD with Roon. When I use JRiver only or Roon only, there is no delay when changing from one sample rate to another

I have not noticed the delay changing rates either, just the beginning of each selected track. I do not know if it is the DAC or Roon, but they appear to be working on it!
