Description of Issue

Bluesound Node connected to Topping E50 DAC via USB - Severe audio dropouts and static. If connected via COAX or Optical no issues present. It appears that this is a known issue between Roon and Bluesound. Can you let me know whether a fix is coming soon for this issue? I see from other forums, Bluesound believe the issue rests with Roon. Many thanks.

Hi @Soul_Bruva,

There is indeed a known issue with using a node via USB. At this time there is no word on when a fix will be released from Bluesound.


Return the nodeā€¦get a raspberry pi4 :slight_smile:
