Perform the following steps:
- switch on Arcam SA30 version build 867 v1.41 is used
- Plays music from ROON (version 1.7, Build 710) with Tidal account
Random distortion occurs
The problem occurs randomly but to a greater extent with MQA files. Can not be reconstructed but seems to occur when SA30 has been running for a long time. Could it be due to heat?
It seems that this happens more frequently when Roon goes from a non MQA file to an MQA file. I get the feeling that it does not really connect the MQA decoder in the right way.
Under settings - Sound - Roon Device setup there is the option to set a resync delay. This should help the hardware to sync between different formats. I am now testing if this can help SA30 to have time to change and hopefully not create distortion. Maybe more people can test this. I will keep you updated if this solves the problem of ditortion at least if you use Roon.
Thanks for reporting, I created a ticket.
