PS Audio DirectStream DAC with Bridge II running Snowmass 3.06
Description Of Issue
When a hi-res track (24bit or DSD) is paused or stopped, a loud noise occurs immediately after five seconds. It coincides with the Roon signal path icon turning off. This noise is similar that of an electric spark heard through the loudspeakers. A recording of that noise has been created as a m4a file which could not be uploaded due to file type restrictions. This recording, which clearly demonstrates the issue, can be provided separately if needed.
PS Audio have tested the Bridge and the DAC, and they did not find anything wrong with the equipment.
Furthermore, this issue does not occur when playing JRiver Media Centre 25 running on the same MacBook Pro. Nor does it occur when using mconnect/mcontrolHD app on an iOS device to control the Bridge II.
