Why Audirvana Studio & Origin stop playback after a few minutes?

Hi There, My Audirvana Stops after a few minutes, I reduced the buffer but still the same.

Here is the debug info. Please help!

Try playing to the built in audio device.

You have 24gb of Memory in your Mac, don’t reduce the buffer…
put it between 18gb - 20gb

Ain’t Audirvana better when Hog Mode is on ?

Hello there, I don’t seem to know what and where Hog Mode is!
My apologise

Hello,

i have a simple set up as you… except i use a plugin for a little low end bass add… but i don’t stream, don’t upsample, don’t use iTunes like you… have 20gb of memory and give Audirvana 15gb

i have 2 settings in my DAC input…
Exclusive access and integer mode… both on
if i turn OFF Exclusive access, i lose the integer mode preference,
and then my debug shows Hog Mode off…

can’t say more, not knowledge enough, maybe DAC related ??

Have you tried putting memory buffer to 18gb - 20gb ?

Thanks a lot. My settings look different from yours. There is no “Exclusive Access” , there is no “Large CoreAudio buffer” either!
I don’t know. Thanks for your help anyways.

HEllo @AlirezaAtarian,

I presume you have your issue while you have this output selected:

Can you confirm it’s the case? If so, can you post your debug info while you have this output selected?

Well this is the only output I use, of course other than my internal mac output. This is my streamer which is ‘Audio Lab’ and that is connected to my Quad DAC.

Here is the debug info:

Ahead of Antoine who’s sleeping :slight_smile:

Always happening with .wav files or others too?

Put ON ‘do not use raw PCM’ preferences and see…
not important i think: if not MQA capable… turn off ‘Auto-Detect MQA’ preferences…

Hi Antonie, This is the only output I use. the other option would be MAC internal speakers

Hello @AlirezaAtarian,

Can you try to reproduce your issue with this test version?
