    New difficulty play Hi Rez files

    Dont know what happened. Was working well a couple of days ago. Now when playing 24/96 files im getting major buffering.
    Steps taken:
    unplugged/replugged in Oppo 105 DAC
    uninstalled/reinstalled EDO
    Upgraded software
    Changed output from USB to CoAx
    reset Touch to factory


    Tried switching from LMS to Roon.

    Nothing works.

    Like I said, was working fine as of yesterday.

    Aslo reset router

    Am I missing anything ?

    I just tried installing/ reinstalling EDO and I got a "kernel update failed"

    Possible you have a new neighbor on your wifi channel? Try an alternate: 1, 6, or 11.

    Or switch to Powerline:

    Thanks. Every other Wifi device seems to be working well.

    I switched the 2.4 ghz on Orbi and it seems to be fine. Thank you.
    I have one album I cant play. Its a 24/192 down load that im pretty sure use to play?
    I'm streaming a Tidal album right now in 24/192 with no issues.

    So Im still having intermittent drops. Mostly on HiRez. 24/96 and higher. It will work for a hour or so, then I get skips. Im wondering Id there is a limitation on streaming HiRez over 2.4ghz on WiFi?

    New difficulty play Hi Rez files

    For sure. Much better use physical connection for hi-res. Wi-Fi is not good
    enough at all - copes with ordinary FLAC but over about 1000Kbps, it will
    stutter & rebuffer over & over

    Yeah - FWIW I wouldn't be streaming any 24-bit stuff over Wi-Fi - at least not for your main critical listening system

    Having set that one of my secondary systems (see my signature) I use a SB Touch and that is via Wi-Fi and uses the internal DAC in the Touch as well - it's been doing similarly very badly on me last few days and haven't figured out if it's due to my new QLMS install on my new QNAP NAS (the NAS is on a 1Gbs Ethernet Cabled Network that my WAP is connected to).

    FWIW: I have a high quality Ubiquiti 'UniFi' WAP on a clean channel (clear of neighbour's Wi-Fi) and broadcasting an extremely strong signal (and straight line distance from SB Touch is about 6m with a single internal wall between them) - so although I wouldn't recommend Wi-Fi for hi-res tracks in my set-up it usually works reliably and it isn't the Wi-Fi that causes the lag or stuttering.

    Have you changed anything else recently with your music server or signal path? If it was okay previously it's likely something else (if you aren't getting interference from Neighbour's or from new devices in your home hogging the Wi-Fi bandwidth), like a change to your LMS config...?

    P.S. Nice to see someone else using an Oppo 105 Sabre Reference DAC.

    Hi-Fi 1: QNAP HS-453DX NAS+QLMS/Allo USBridge Signature+Shanti LPS/Cirrus ESS Sabre 32-bit Reference DAC (Oppo 105D)/Yamaha Aventage CX-A5000/Focal SM9s.
    Hi-Fi 2: Sqbox Touch+Shanti LPS/Focal XS Books.
    Hi-Fi 3: PC+Squeezelite-X+Material Skin/Focal XS Books.
    Hi-Fi Misc: iPeng (iPad/iPhones)/Plantronics BB Pro 2 LE Headphones.
    Accessories: Tchernov Classic & Van den Hul ICs; Thor PS10 Power Station; Blue Jeans & Ruleconnect Cables (Power, HDMI, USB & Coaxial); Aurios & Vibrapods.

    Thanks. No I haven't changed anything on my end. Cant really say if the neighbors got anything new hooked up.
    Its physically impossible to hook my touch directly into my router. I can connect it via ethernet to one of my Orbing satellites. Do yo think I'll have better results ?

    Yea the Oppo Sabre DAC is excellent.
