Description Of Issue
I’ve reported this issue to Roon previously when using v1.7 and a very helpful lady from Roon Support offered me a solution that has worked until 1.8 was installed. Every track I play via Quboz or FLAC from the SSD connected to my core PC either skips soon into the track or skips completely.
To eliminate a networking or PC issue, I’ve played the same FLAC files from the SSD over my LAN using Asset UPnP server with no skipping at all.
To eliminate a Quboz issue I’ve played hires tracks in the Quboz app on my PC. I also detached Quboz from Roon and re-connected to no avail.
I can play the same FLAC files from the SSD via the USB on the Uniti Atom, and Quboz natively on the Atom, also via Airplay with no issues.
The previous advice that worked was to restart the core and all nodes, disconnect Quboz and reconnect and alter the DSP Headroom Management (i changed from -3 to -5 in v1.7, which worked). I’ve since increased this in increments to -10 to no avail.
Can anyone offer any advice on what I may have missed or what is going wrong in my Roon 1.8 settings? Roon is unusable for me. Thanks.
