Description Of Issue
it does not happen all the time but, on the occasional late night listing session tracks contain snap crackle and pops like a dirty record. I thought it was the one Bluesound connected to the PSAudio analog, so I rebooted, changed from a Tidal track to a Flac file from my library still had the issue.
tried the Oppo, same issue and the Shiit Modi-same there too. The S,C&Ps don’t happen in the same spots.
I’m thinking it might be Network issue, also thinking of migrating the Roon Core to a dedicated music server Mac Mini or Nucleus. I would like to know if anybody else has had an issue like this before spending on a new server.
