What happens if you have your iMac connected via LAN cable? If the unity and iMac are both on wifi I would suggest trying both connected to the LAN wired router or switch.
What results do you get on
speedtest.net or fast.com for your internet connection?
out of interest what model/year imac are you using

The questions that
@wizardofoz asked are definitely great to know:
Model/year of Mac
Trying with an Ethernet connection
Additionally, I’m hoping you might be able to confirm the following:
Does this happen for all endpoints or just the Naim?
Did this always happen with TIDAL or is this a new issue and it worked previously?

could be some transitory internet connection speed issue too

@James_Harris just a thought, have you tried using 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 DNS?
iMac is the retina 4k, late 2015 with 8gb of memory
Download speeds 331 mbps
Upload speeds 15.8 mbps
I have not tried with an ethernet cable yet.
Naim is my only end point.
There’s always been some issues with Tidal and the Naim via Roon. Some moments when the sound dropped out, but this is worse than before.
Not tried using 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 DNS?
I wondered what was the best way for Roon to communicate with the Naim?

I definitely recommend using Ethernet if possible, even if just for a test. It will help us understand where the issue might be coming from.
Cloudflare and Google DNS are also good options as we’ve seen them help in similar situations.
Can you try playing to
System Output of the iMac Core instead of the Naim? Does that work for you or do you see the same issue?
