Description of Issue
I have the same problem as others with Qobuz, i.e. tracks not playing all the way thru.
I have noticed the following additional problem.
Track is playing, as indicated by the movement of the scrub bar, but there is no music for the first 1-2 seconds.
It isn’t the case that the first 1-2 seconds of a track are supposed to be silence. I am familiar with the tracks being played that this occurs with and the first 4-5 notes are missing.
E.g. in a playlist with 20 tracks this error will occur multiple times and once it starts it usually continues until playlist is done.
This would seem to be a buffer issue, especially since the following was in the V1.7 release notes -
" ## Streaming Optimizations
For music playing from TIDAL and Qobuz, Roon now buffers data in a less disruptive way, and there are optimizations which reduce disk activity, CPU usage, and memory traffic. This means that streaming content starts faster and slower internet connections (or lower-powered cores) may also benefit when streaming high-resolution content. "
This problem and the track skipping problems make Roon w/Qobuz unlistenable.
I just put a PrimaLuna Evo 400 pre-amp in my chain and these problems really harsh my mood.
