Sms200 ultra / brooklyn+ occasional white noise distortion

Hello ,

there is a serious issue streaming qobuz/tidal upnp with audirvana. Upon first seconds of buffering / loading a track (not mqa) , there is some chance that mytek will suddenly play white noise distorion very loudly , puting my speakers / ears into danger. Happens not very often but 1-2 times a day is enough.
No other upnp software causes that.

I am on windows trial period and like this software but this issue keeping me from buying it.

Hello, I faced the same thing a while ago . This happened at the time of an upgrade from A3.0 to Audirvana 3.5. I was playing with the upsampling features, trying different setups.
I think this was due to a specific sampling rate. I have ended up with a setup which works fine by now for my DAC, and it never happened again. But it is frustrating no to know what actually happened …

Hi,
I have exactly the same issue when streaming tidal/quobuz.
It only happens once or twice a day, but the noise is so loud and distorted, that I am afraid my speakers could be damaged.
At first I thought that activation upsampling could have caused the problem.
But also the deactivation of upsampling (and Audio units) was not successful.
Fearing that the problem could recur, I now hardly dare to use Audirvana.
Does anyone have an idea how to solve the issue ?
I would be very grateful for any help.

Hello Damien3,

could you (or anyone else) help me solve this serious problem ?

Here my Debug Info (perhaps this helps for better understanding).

Thank you very much for your support !

Hello @urobauer, can you download an Audio Unit EQ lile SonEQ (it’s a free EQ) and turn all settings of buttons to the left for low mid and high in the EQ?

Hi @Damien3,
thank you very much for your support.
I downloaded and installed the SonEQ and followed your instructions.
At the moment, everything works fine.
I will observe the further course and then report.
Can I reactivate upsampling x 2 now ?

You can try with upsampling, feel free to ask the manufacturer of your DAC to know why you have to use an EQ to listen to your music.
