I recently acquired a SonicorbiterSE and started a sixty-day trial subscription to ROON. My audio chain is: SonicorbiterSE->Regen->GO450->Schiit Vali2->HifIman HE400 headphones. I've been experiencing some pops and ticks, even at the Redbook level (16 bit / 44.1 Mhz). I was told by someone at Sonicorbiter that there was someone else who had the same issue.
GO450 worked flawlessly with Windows (and JPLAY streamer). Is this a Linux issue? Has anyone else had a similar experience?
