Description of Issue

I find certain songs crash using RAAT but not the google streaming service or Airplay

For example : La Murga on a Man and his Music: La Vox (Hector Lavoe). Doesn’t make it pass 20 seconds using RAAT but plays fully on Chrome cast and airplay.

It is a likely a problem with RAAT or my NP5 (DAC) set up - but I think the problem is with RAAT.

Kind regards,

What bitrates is the track and are you upsampling?

Screen shot of the signal path would perhaps help too

Many thanks for responding wizardofoz

All the best,


Ok I reset everything and reinstalled the streamer using google home.

My simplistic diagnostic is that RAAT, chromecast and Airplay are all vying for control of the NP5 - and it gets confused so ensure bluetooth off and casting off in google home to allow RAAT to have primacy.
