MQA files intermitent

Hi, I hope somebody can provide some orientation…

Everything was perfect, and suddenly I can’t play MQA files from Tidal. I get intermittent output. Non MQA files play perfectly and also the high resolution files in my hard drive. I’m not sure what changed.

This is my debug info…Thanks as always

Hello @Perro1965, have you tried to disable your Audio Unit plugin when you want to play a MQA track from Tidal?

Damien, thanks for your reply.
I have realized that I am having problems with my internet connection and this may be the root cause. I am trying to get this fixed and will then test again. I will share my results.
Regards
