Description Of Issue

Music would occasionally glitch, hiccup.
I though it was a network problem (WiFi!) so I went to the other room and listened through direct USB, no network, but the glitches remained (note completely different system).
I rebooted Nucleus (as usual, this is very difficult, using web interface it never comes back, I press the back button both quickly and long-press several times, and restarted the remote, and eventually got it back).
Initially, I thought the glitches went away, but I still get occasional glitches.

The music was three different albums, red book, all on an SSD inside the Nucleus.

EDIT I think I got only one glitch after the reboot, I was listening one the USB connected Chord stack, then moved to the network connected Benchmark and got no more glitches.

Hi @AndersVinberg,

Since the reboot have you continued to experience any of these issues?

Are the audio glitches always occurring at the same points or are they randomly occurring?

Do they still occur if you play to System Output of a remote?

As I said, after the reboot I didn’t get any glitches (maybe one…). I haven’t listened since then.

Random, I think, but I didn’t repeat the track systematically. I did repeat some and got the impression it was random.

Didn’t try system output. If the glitches come back I will.
