Description of Issue

I recently installed Roon on my Windows 11 PC. All works fine when I chose an iPad or my Lumin streamer as outputdevice. Great!

Whem I stream to my Bluesound Node i or my Bluesound Node 2 the sound is not stable. Now and then I hear a kind of flutter in the music. A sound like a needle skipping a few grooves of an LP.

I’ve tried all the different settings of Roon I could think of but nothing helps.

I had this problem with my node 2i at first. I no longer have the node so I can’t go in and look at what I turned off but there is a feature in the node to do something with clocking (I think). I turned it off and and it fixed the problem.

You may have to a search but there are a couple of threads regarding this.
From memory reindexing solved it it think even though Roon wasn’t using BluOS. Sounds daft I know….

I’ve had this issue with node2 forever,thought I was imagine it,little hiccups in the music,I complained to bluesound about it ages ago

I deleted the BlueOs library and indeed it is’t that annouying anymore, weard, but not completely gone. Any more steps?

Hard wired or wifi?

I‘ve deleted the Bluesound library and after some days I can say that definitely helps. Thanks a lot lot for this weird tweak.

I also do not have a Bluesound library anymore, and use it with Roon and sometimes Tidal connect or a Chromecast audio (into the optical input)

No problems at all now, and connected via Ethernet.
