Description Of Issue
Occasionally, there is a brief dropout (fraction of a second) in the middle of a track. This seems to happen only with 16/44.1 FLACs. I am not sure if this is a coincidence. About 50% of my tracks are 16/44.1.
On the other hand, this happens with both Qobuz and local tracks.
This happens less than once per day. So it is not easy to reproduce.
I tried to set the ALSA buffer size to 100 ms but that did not help.
Hi @Peter_Ho2 I’m not support but while you’re waiting it might be good to know what the other 50% of tracks are. I presume they’re higher bit rates, in which case the issue is unlikely network. I suspect that you know that’s the case but a bit more info would help.
I want to begin by thanking you for your incredible patience. I am so sorry that we’ve taken this long to reply. We’re still working our way to get back to everyone who’s reached out in the past two weeks
I’ve moved this thread into our technical team’s queue. In the meantime, in case you haven’t, could you please take a look at the article below - especially the part discussing mesh networks:
