That is interesting. Most of the dropouts I get are towards the end of long tracks (symphonies, for example). I’ve had this problem, for example, while listening to the Shostakovich symphony no. 11. The second, third, and fourth movements flow into each other. Towards the end of the second movement there are a few seconds of silence interspersed with plucked double bass. Roon always skips at the same point from the second to the third movement (about five seconds out from the end of the second). If I recue the second movement and play from near the end, then it plays through. I remember reading in one of the posts of the ROON support staff that Roon interprets three seconds of silence over a specified playback period as the end of a track, and skips on to the next. I wonder if this is what is happening? Except that the silences are intentional on the part of the composer!! When I listen to pieces with shorter movements there is no problem, or when long tracks don’t flow into each other.
I have a gigabit network, an I-5 computer with 8gb memory, a fast SSD, and a Roon endpoint comprising the Raspberry Pi 2B and HifiBerry Digi+, Modi Multibit with a SPDIF Ipurifier between the Digi+ and the DAC. Sound quality is pretty outstanding.
I wish Roon 1.3 would address this problem. At the moment, there is a bug in the program they need to address, but I’m not sure anyone at Roon is listening.
