Description of Issue

I’ve purchased ‘The Sound of Sonny’ by Sonny Rollins from HD Tracks in AIFF 192kHz 24 bit. It won’t play the first two tracks, but will play the rest of the album fine. The same files have no issues being played through Apple Music, so that seems to eliminate the possibility of an incomplete or damages file. I’ve tried different hardware/DACs on my setup (both players that are able to accept bitperfect streams and ones that will downsample like Sonos) but am unable to play the two tracks on any.

Hello @Quinten_Kroes ,

Can you please upload the affected files to the following link and let us know once uploaded? Thanks!
