I just connected a HifiBerry Digi+ to my amp via coax cable. Then I tried playing a spotify playlist via the spotify connect feature (connect to musicbox). Sound works perfectly, but I noticed that the first half second or so of every song is missing. My guess is that musicbox cuts the output stream at the end of each song and then sets it up again at the beginning of a new song, but it takes my amp a couple hundred ms to sync back up (this is confirmed somewhat by the input symbol on my amp turning off at the end of each song and then turning back on when the sound of the next song comes back).
So I guess my question is, can I tell musicbox to keep the connection to the amp “alive”, for lack of a better way to say it… or am I on the completely wrong track?
Any help would be appreciated!
