Problems with Audirvana with Airfoil

Has anybody had problems using Audirvana and Airfoil together?

I have a Mac Mini which houses my music library playing on Audirvana which outputs to the digital output and à Denon Amp. I also use Airfoil to transmit to an Apple TV in the kitchen.

If I choose an album and start playing and then launch Airfoil it will play happily on both outputs but if I change the album playing I lose the sound to the digital output on the computer but the Apple TV carries on playing. The only way to get the sound back on the computer digital output is to restart Airfoil.

Just in case someone has the same problem, I solved this thanks to support from Airfoil. For this setup to work properly you need to deactivate the “unique access” setting in Audirvana.
