Description Of Issue
I am experiencing several 2 second episodes of crackle and almost like tape warble on every track played through the Bluesound node 2i.
This always occurs within the first 5 -20 seconds of a new track playing and happens again at least twice in an average 3-4 minute track.
It occurs no matter if playing a track from Qobuz or files from the network drive and only on the Bluesound Node and not the iMacs core audio or the Sonos speakers.
I’m currently on a 14 day trial and I’m very happy with the interface anf library and zone management over the Bluesound app but this is just so frustrating and couldn’t go for a sub if this can’t be resolved.
