Audio stutters/stammers/interrupts on wifi

Postby grummelzwerg » Wed Oct 18 2017 17:33

Hi

Same issue here, but I am using Raspberry 3 and Hifiberry DAC+.

I already had the issue with my old setup (Raspberry 2) but there it has been related to power management settings for the wifi dongle.
The issue only appeared after an update of volumio 2 but can't tell you which release was still ok..

Just tried via Ethernet, there, all is ok.

Best regards

Can this issue be helped, or do we have to take it as a fact?

Thanks man for reporting.
I've set my goal to improve sound quality considerably with this realease, so: let's dropout but less SQ.
Could you elaborate a bit more so we fine tune it?

All I can say is that there are, irregularly approximately every 5 seconds, short audible interruptions in playback from about 50ms to 200ms, and listening for more that 5 minutes my ears start ringing. Now, my ears are sensitive, I have this with other equipment also, but with a direct USB connection from my PC to my DAC there is no problem concerning that.
