Just getting started on my first SBC DAC project. Install, wireless and HAT configuration went smoothly using the Volumio interface. Tested Volumio web radios and all works well. However, airplay is not working well at all, no matter the source (files on my device, Pandora, streaming from computer, from phone, from iPad, etc.) the result is the same. It connects and begins to play, but after a few seconds, the Kali buffer indicates empty, the music stops and sometime, maybe 10 to 30 seconds later, blue lights and music return, but only for a short time and the cycle begins again.
Regarding power supply, I have an iFi 5.0v fed to the Kali, which is in turn feeding power to the Raspberry Pi 3B and the Piano 2.1, which is running in 2.0 mode.
I have played with the buffering settings using Volumio and the results are the same.
I’ve scoured the web and see some people having similar issues with Spotify and Airplay, but do not see a firm solution. I’m reaching out to the community for guidance.
