It turned out to be related to the PEQ, switch it off and all is well. I experimented a bit and it seemed due to boosting too much on the L&R channels. The boosts seemed modest enough but anything more than flat on the PEQ caused the drop-outs so I went with a cut only PEQ profile on all channels and it seemed to cure things for me.
Previous to this I was convinced it was related to levels but I am not so sure now, personally I think the ADA is a bit 'sensitive' as I have never come across this behaviour with another SSP.
There seems to be some limit in relation to input signal, channel levels and PEQ that causes cut-outs. It isn't something I noticed prior to the 1.4 update but then if it is recent media induced then that would explain why it didn't happen before.
I wish I had a firm answer but at least I found a way to avoid it. I admit never having tried LPCM when I had the issue though.
P.s. source is stream via Dune HD.
Hate to say this, but it's nice to see I am not the only one with this problem, and it's even better the same disc same scene is at fault. With MIP4 you could almost sense when the Audio would drop, like you say Adam any dynamic sequence!!
Unfortunately for me even with the PEQ off I suffer drop out's. When on, my PEQ is only set for my L/R speakers, and there are no boosts to these.
Is there a way to completely wipe clean the ADA's settings? Factory reset does not do this...
Same here, since the update mine has been plagued with drop outs, or is this just a coincidence, has the industry altered it's standard?
So where do ADA owners go from here? However good ADA is, having Audio drop out is unacceptable, hopefully an ADA rep can come along and shed some light on this, I'm sure they must be watching
p.s Not only because the ADA is the most expensive bit of AV kit I have owned to date, I am also in the Dog house for spending so much time on Christmas day experimenting, I do hope something comes of all these posts.....Edited by magicj1 - 12/27/12 at 12:23am
