Description of Issue
My player pauses and restarts, sometimes drops one or more zones, or simply stops playing.
Almost every time I use the player, it’s gotten to the point where I sometimes use Roon to find something to play, then roll over to Sonos to control the playback, because Roon is almost certain to stop in the middle of play (while Sonos, on the same network, with the same files plays without interruption).
I am so irritated that on the same system, same network, same files, the one I need to keep up with more than $100/year in subscriptions, consistently fails to work, while the basic sonos system works.
