I have 1GB internet connection and my Roon end points are connected via Ethernet.
The chromecast is the only Roon endpoint in my network connected via wifi and it is in direct view of an Ubiquiti access point. My pro-ject ultra streamer is Roon ready and connected via Ethernet also but no gapless playback.
Well, there’s Resync delay in the Audio device Setup (see the article below), but that should only kick in if there is a format change between tracks. A gap of 5 seconds between every track is very bizarre, and certainly not normal.
Resync delay was and still is at 0ms. Anyhow, the fact that all end point regarding of their connection and specification are non-gapless indicates that it is probably a Roon internal issue. Is there anything else I can do?
All your endpoints? I thought that your endpoint was a single chain: Roon core → Pro-ject ultra streamer → Chord qutest → Naim NAC 202.
What’s your Core running on? If it’s a Windows PC or Mac, set up the system output as an endpoint and test that. Alternatively, you could also set up the system outputs on an iPad or smartphone and test for gapless on them.
I also have a bluesound speaker that is also Roon ready and a pair of apple HomePod mini. But my main hifi stereo has the pro-Ject streamer and a chromecast connected to the chord dac.
I tried with the iPad as an endpoint. Nada! Same thing with a delay in between tracks every single time.
My dedicated Roon core is an intel NUC 2 years old with 16 GM of memory.my Roon core is connected via Ethernet to my router/modem. Connected to my router is a switch from which I run multiple Ethernet connections across my house.
Just a thought that occurs to me - have you tested with an album that you definitely know has gapless tracks, e.g. Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon? Or an opera that has been recorded with gapless tracks?
Most albums do have silence padding at the end of their tracks, so that when played a gap is introduced, even though the next track immediately follows the previous one.
