Mac mini M1 8gb, headless, fully dedicated to Roon. Mac OS Monterrey 12.3.1
Library on HDD connected through Thunderbolt to Mac mini
Unifi UDM (latest firmware), Google DNS, all end points wired Cat 6a, 1 Tb internet connection
Matriz Audio Element X (wired); Naim ND5XS (wired, through Sonore bridge); Mu-so Qb (wireless)
+/- 150k, 120k local library, 30k Tidal
When playing music, when I try to jump to next song on queue and/or change track or album, there is usually a gap (not always, but say 80% of the time) of 4-7 seconds until the track plays. This happens both for local stored music and Tidal. Not related to CPU or RAM usage (happens when both are in low usage). It is happening more lately,
I’ve tried rebooting everything (Roon, Mac mini, router, etc); deleting orbit_V3.db file on Roon Database; etc but the problem comes back.
I had this issue a few months back when using a Mac mini 2012 and an Apple router. Based on Roon support advice, I changed both to current set up and the problem disappeared. But it has come back in the last +/-4 weeks, not sure if because updates to Roon, OSX. iOS or UDM firmware.
As the first 3 are not under my control and likely not the root cause of the issue (I haven’t seen similar issues to mine in the forum lately), I would appreciate some advice from you guys on how to correctly set up UDM for Roon… Please note that I’m not a proficient IT guy.
