Description Of Issue
My new amplifier arrived yesterday, a Cambridge Audio Edge A. In this system I use a Sonore Ultrarendu to stream from Roon (Macbook Pro is my Core) to the amplifier. I’ve never had an issue with this setup (previously I’ve used a Hegel H120 and a Peachtree Audio Nova 300 as the amps). After setting up the Cambridge and attempting to stream, Roon simply skipped through all the tracks. Says it’s playing them all, but only quickly shows the title, then moves on to the next, taking about 5-10 seconds to move through the entire album and then rests at “nothing playing.”
Here’s where it gets weirder. I plugged in my chromecast and connected it to the Edge A via optical to see if I had the same issue. It worked fine…for most albums. On a few albums, however, there is no sound. It says it’s playing, and the time bar is progressing, but no sound.
In both cases I checked the system output (Macbook speakers) and it plays through there. Since the Edge A is the only component I’ve changed, I’m wondering if there are compatibility issues with it and the Sonore, and potentially it and the Chromecast (which is weird since Cambridge’s streamers use Chromecast). I’m willing to purchase another streamer if necessary. But after spending all that money on the Edge A I’d rather not.
Any help is much appreciated! The Edge A is a beast and sounds great, but if I can’t properly stream to it, that’s an obvious deal-breaker.
