OOOO Yesss! One of the problem is gone,. I restarted my audiocard, without realizing this could solve the problem, and from them on, the music never stops, besides maybe onece every half an hour.

The crackling comes from time to time, but not enough to drive me nuts.

, I'm stunt that a simple restart of computer and soundcard could solve anything.

BTW, the dac sounds amazing. DEstroys every aspects of the V-Dac. The music experience is so easy. It just let the music show itself. The bass are tight, clear, precise. The soundstage and the imaging is great, but what really surprise me, is how everything breath. Nothing is congested, I listen to a lot of jazz, and all the instrument have their place. With the v-dac, which sounds decent considering the price, on complicated music, you almost need to struggle to hear every detail, with the buffalo, everything is presented with no effort. It's hard to explain, but its so much easier to just appreciate the song. I was a bit concern that to much detail would kill the musicallity, but its not the case. I'm really happy and its worth every penny. I can now hear how my amp and speakers need to be changed!

anyway, thanks

The cracklings are there, and only there, when I play 24-96 files. Why is that?

Oups, I may have talked too early. The cracklings and rebuffering problem are back.

I will post the pictures tomorrow.

The craklings are there even when foobar is totally closed and the dac and amp connected

I have try with a bad dvd player that is near not fonctionnal, I will find a decent cd player, because the dvd player buffs all the time, so couldn't understand what was what. however the craklings werent there...

Very likely it is your computer and soundcard

I'm jasonthegreat also.
I hope so, I will find a cd player with coax out, and will report later.

So far, the problem is really intermittent. The buffalo is working now, with no problem, only when I play certain hi-res files. So, I'm keeping it open all the time, because when I turn it off and open it back, it doesnt work. It seems as if I need to turn off the buffalo, I must let it completely relax for at least 2 hours, and then the buffalo works normally, but if I rush th8ings (close it and open it 20 minute later) the buffalo have all the problem, no matter what files.

weird!

thanks so far for the help, I need to find a cd player with coax

It could just be a bad connection or cold solder joint somewhere in the build, which was aggravated when the unit was shipped to you.

but a bad connection would be causing the problem with certain files? Because the problem is ALWAYS there with a couple of hi-res files...

Could just be a coincidence. Honestly, it could be one of a million things... there is just not enough information to find a solution.
