I am running the latest volumio on a RaspberryPi. (My DAC is an Emotiva XDA-2).
Time to time mp3 playback goes to rubish: very loud white noise is overlaid on the mp3 sound. The mp3 sound is not replaced by noise, the noise is overlaid on it.
Lossless playback (e.g. flac) is perfectly OK. The issue comes and goes, doesn’t happen all the time, sometimes mp3 playback is OK, sometimes it is not.
Again: this is NOT the cracking issue. It is loud white noise mixed with the music for mp3s.
