I usually control Roon using an iPhone 6 or an iPad mini.
I believe the Roon core and all Roon apps are up to date. Ditto the NAD M10 and Bryston BDP-2 software.
Description Of Issue
I use long playlists, looped. The playlists and all tracks in them are on the HDD on my Windows PC. They used to reside on NAS 1. Moving them doesn’t seem to have made much difference. I believe these tracks are all 44.1/16 FLAC.
Playback to the NAD M10 pauses spontaneously, in a few minutes to a few hours after starting. I don’t think it’s ever played for more than 10 hours without pausing. Sometimes I can just restart playback by hitting play in the Roon app. Sometimes when I hit play the M10 reboots spontaneously. Sometimes the M10 disappears from Roon’s list of players until I manually reboot the M10. Also, the M10 has spontaneously rebooted during playback (without pause/resume) at least once.
I bought the M10 through Crutchfield and they sent a replacement unit which I’m not using. As far as I can tell both units have exhibited the same problems.
Playback to the Bryston BDP-2 also pauses spontaneously. I believe this happens less frequently. I believe this occurred occasionally before I added the M10 to the system.
I have not seen spontaneous pauses in playback to the Squeezebox Touch.
I have seen playback pauses and other issues with USB to the Rotel, but I’m not concerned about that. The Rotel is often in standby so Roon doesn’t even see it.
The issues that I’m most interested in resolving are the ones involving playback to the NAD M10. I mentioned the pauses with the Bryston BDP-2 because they surprised me and seem to indicate that there may be issues outside the M10.
