I just set up my Roon core in a VM, hoping to get a bit more out of my pc, and now everytime i play music through my stereo connected directly to the core I get a popping/snapping (It sounds almost like an old recordplayer) or sometimes completly distorted sound during the playback.
It doesn’t matter if Im listening to local library or to Qobuz or Tidal.
I had no issues when running on bare metal (same pc nothing about the hardware changed only added the VM).
I have tried increasing the VMs RAM to 8GB, I have messed around with the buffer size in Roon and I have tried downgrading from USB3 to USB2. None of it seems to work.
There are no issues with streaming to devices not connected to my core. I have got a Raspberry pi 3 running dietpi with Roon bridge and no issues.
Anyone got experience with this sort of thing and how to fix it?
My setup is as follows:
Roon 1.8 (build 898) in a VM running ubuntu server 20.04.3 with 6GB RAM and 4 cores(It seemed to be what it was using when it ran on bare metal). On a Lenovo ideacentre mini 5 running Proxmox VE 7.1 with a PS Audio Sprout100 connected via a USB3 port and passed through to the VM.
