I’m having a problem with white noise static starting to appear after playing for a while before dropping the connection to the DAC. I’m playing music files off a synology NAS over WiFi to a Simaudio Moon 280d via USB. This started on Friday. It doesn’t happen on any particular album or song and at first is only a time or two in short bursts but then continues to get worse where it’s several seconds of static happening every few seconds, then it loses the output connection to the DAC. Rebooting fixes it until the next time it happens.
UPDATED: adding that I no longer get the static noises, instead it either refuses to recognize the DAC (output channel not available), or it does connect but drops the connection after a short while). I’ve tried multiple USB cables from cheap certified computer USB to my $$$ Synergistic Research reference USB. None work so I don’t think it’s a cable issue. It does work over spdif/coax.
It previously worked well with the following (using SR reference USB)
PS Audio original SPROUT
Simaudio Moon 430HAD
It has not worked well with
PS Audio Sprout100 because it has a verified Linux bug that PS Audio is working to fix
Simaudio Moon 280D which is what I’m trying to use currently.
I had demoed the 430HAD to make sure the Aries played well with the Moon DACS, but I guess that didn’t help much.
