Description Of Issue
I am in the trial period of Roon and I am very pleased with the UI and the integration of my small local library and my Tidal account. Unfortunately the way I organize my favourites in BlueOs/Tidal app is not kept in Roon - date of release or date of added to collection.
But the problem is that I hear pops and cracks when I play Tidal through Roon to my Node 2i and into my main rig.
I like the quality of the sound but the pops are a real nuisance and they come and go. Last night I spent some 2 hours listening to music with Roon, and at one point I had to use BlueOS, because the pops were often and frustrating. Like every 20 seconds or so.
Now I am listening while I write the message and is fine. Erratic problem.
I plan to upgrade the core to a dedicate NUC in the future and commit to Roon but this pops are a serious issue.
