I hear random clicking sounds in the middle of DSD tracks (both direct* and DoP modes**). Below is my setup:
Volumio v. 2.201
RPi 3 (w/ Ethernet connection and had on board WiFi turned off)
DSD files stored on a USB stick
iFi iDSD Micro BL (powered by a linear power supply unit)
*Tried changing buffer sizes and no improvement
**Changing from the DSD Direct to DoP mode helps a little but clicks are still there
I don’t remember hearing similar noise on 2.185 in the DSD Direct mode. The same track I played on another setup (Onkyo HF Player/iPad connected to [the same] iFi iDSD Micor BL) has no such issues. PCM files play in the above RPi 3 - Volumio 2 setup with no issues.
A quick research online http://forums.naimaudio.com/topic/clicking-popping-sound-with-dsd-after-v1-16-firmware-upgrade-on-dac-v1?reply=53097172995301800 shows users of some other DSD players had similar issues at some point/version. Just wondered if other folks here experience problems similar to mine.
