I’ve noticed many songs a mid/high distortion that sounds like a cable might be loose or a bad connection somewhere. Finally after hours of switching out cables I decided to bypass the DAC and use my Anthem STR DAC (via usb) instead. Spitting sound gone!
It’s not an MQA thing because it happens on Qobuz as well.
At first I thought I’d blown a tweeter or mid driver.
Also of note, I’ve turn off all processing in the Lumin T2 and letting Roon do the heavy lifting.
Is this a common thing? I found out that Lumin’s customer service is in China and they don’t have an 800 number so I had to email. This ought to be very interesting.
Note: that most of the time the dac sounds fantastic! It’s only on those transients that I hear a “splatter” if you will at ALL volumes.
