Description of Issue

We have light clicking or ticking inside the music during playback of most tidal songs (MQA or NOT MQA, FLAC)
It’s like micro buffering. It does not effect the sound quality like dynamics or sound stage.
I’m using roon 1.8 (buik 831)stable with nad m33. The issues is not noticed when using any other music source outside of roon.I don’t have any dsp filters on.
So far I hear it when streaming from music outside of my personal recorded library on NAS synology.
Nad M33 update at last firmware version

Hi @Sergio_Fanti,

We do not have any reports of this behavior on other devices, so I don’t think this is related to Roon itself.

I would get in contact with the NAD support team to see if they have insight into what could be causing this. If you’re using Dirac Live I would try disabling it to see if it resolves the issue.



Thanks John
