I use a ripnas with a linn klimaxds and when on asset release 3 I had no issues at all with audio dropouts. After changing to asset release 4 I'm experiencing quite a few dropouts. Just to ensure that the problem didn't lie elsewhere I have done quite a bit of troubleshooting and the problem seems to be with the new asset. My network setup is robust and as per Linn recommendations even so far as hardware choices. When I stream from my computer which does not run asset I get no dropouts at all---rock solid performance-- it's only when streaming from ripnas that I have problems. I have the housekeeping issue locked down on the ripnas as per usual. I checked to make sure my switch port where ripnas plugs in wasn't at fault and it isn't. Changed ethernet cables and that didn't help-- problem definitely isolated to ripnas. Any suggestions to correct this or how can I go back to asset release 3 until this issue is resolved. Thanks in advance for your help.
