Description Of Issue

Problem has just started, where local music CD/HD all works fine, Tidal CD quality works fine, but any Tidal MQA material plays for a few seconds, then drops, then the AudioZone on Roon disappears for a few seconds before reappearing.

Hi @Chris_Bowie,

Can you please share a screenshot of your Device Setup tab for the Meridian zone and a screenshot of your Signal Path when there is MQA content playing to it?

Sure thing - screenshots attached.

Hi @Chris_Bowie,

Thanks for sharing that screenshot. Can you please confirm if local MQA tracks experience the same behavior? You can download a few sample tracks from the 2L Test Bench site. I would download the 44khHz version to keep this test as close to the original sample rate as possible.
