Dropouts while streaming music

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm hoping for some help with an issue I'm having with dropouts when I'm streaming music from my computer to my DAC. Due to limitations in the placement of my PC, I have about a 15ft USB cable running from my computer to my DAC. I'm not sure if this is the issue, but I get frequent dropouts. I either have to play around with the device output settings on my computer or restart the DAC to get music going again. My questions are:

1. Could this be a result of the length of the USB cable

2. Is there a device or solution to my issue.


My system is as follows:


PC running Windows 10

2TB UPnP external hard drive where my music files are stored

Roon Player feeding into Mytek Brooklyn DAC

You can also try Airfoil to stream wirelessly but downside is streaming with 44.1 kHz max
