Yeah, that is what I was trying to imply/say. Sucks because we’ve invested in roon-certified high-rez speakers and service (TIDAL), but Roon doesn’t seem to be able to handle the streaming consistently. Yes, the masters in TIDAL are very large, but we have the requisite hardware and network speed, and Tidal Desktop plays same files fine.
As noted in our Networking Guide, we recommend that you use an Ethernet connection whenever possible. As a test, can you try connecting your Core and one of your audio devices to the network via Ethernet? Is there any improvement when doing so?
