Linux (unRAID), Intel Xeon CPU E3-1245 v3 @ 3.40GHz, 32GB RAM, Roon running in Docker image
FritzBox router with GBit LAN and 2.4/5GHz WiFi, Netgear switch with Gbit LAN
Chromecast Audio (WiFi), 4x Sonos One SL (all Sonos net through LAN), 2 of them grouped and 2 single ones
My Sonos speakers are set (in Roon) to crossfade tracks (8 secs) and auto volume levelling. When playing a Tidal playlist of about 280 tracks, playback stops regularly at regular intervals (at least every 8-10 tracks) just before the end of a track. I then need to hit play again using the Roon app. Then playback resumes for a few tracks but then the exact same issue happens again.
I’m also using a Chromecast Audio where crossfade is smooth and works for hours non-stop. Crossfade on the Sonos speakers is terrible by contrast. Playback stopping altogether is worst, but even consecutive tracks don’t really crossfade for 8 seconds. Instead, the previous track stops and the new one begins immediately.
Any help would be much appreciated as this makes the combination of Roon and my Sonos speakers near impossible to use. Thanks very much.
