I need to reactivate this tread with problem I have with my CD N500.
I had it more than 3 years as main source for digital and lossless. Very happy with sound at the first, connectivity option and grate look but in last few weeks I ve' noticed very loud pop from speakers between tracks using USB slot for my external HDD. Firstly it comes only when playing ripped flac files ( where tracks are separately recorded) also with some wav rarely with mp3 files.
This pops are connected with volume pot possition on my Nait 5i. Increasing volume on amp. following pop loudness from both speakers.
"Pure direct" option is constantly activated, I ve tried to turn on/off but without changes, pop still running ...
If I am using CD as source or internet radio, there is no any pop, only when I am switching sources what is quite normal for.
I have tried to change interconntect cable between amp and player, USB cable between HDD and Yamaha, power cable, speaker cables but nothings changed. Gapless option is turned on.
If some of owners has a similar problem or any idea how to fix I'll be very gratefull. If not, I should contact my local audio service in nearest future.
Thanks in advance!
