I’ve been looking for this problem somewhere else on the forum and have been unsuccessful. Tidal integration on my Antipodes works perfectly, until I pull up an MQA file which will play for seconds up to a minute and start pausing/skipping until it changes to another song. It happens almost every time, and I have throttled my file analyzer back. I also have reasonably high internet speeds and a high speed modem/router. Any thoughts?
As MQA streaming from Tidal requires a higher bandwidth, there can be issues with some ISP providers throttling the stream. A difficult one to confirm I know without testing from another location.
As a test, to eliminate audio-analysis … can you disable it for a while to see if that has an affect or not.
Could you confirm that is well when you play local files (both CD and HiRes)?
Hi @Josh_Gordon, this issue was discussed here
If you like to contact me at email@example.com I can provide more information.
Something like this ?

I had the skipping problem when streaming using WiFi to a NAD C390DD (with Bluesound module). I have changed to Cat 5 cable and now it works fine. So it seems that buffering using WiFi was a problem for me. Only high-resolution MQA files was problematic. I don’t recall if 96 kHz was problematic but 192 kHz always failed.
