iTunes issues. Other players recommended??

Unread post by cleanupkid » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:29 pm

Hi all
I have been having issued with crackling whne playing from iTunes (files stored on DS413j) to my Cambridge Audio network streamer.
Whatever i do I cannot seem to stop it. I have tried re-ripping cds in various file types etc.

Firstly has anyone else had this issue and know a solution??

Secondly, can anyone recommend a player? I have Minimserver upnp setup, butt I find DS Audio to be VERY slow and unresponsive, plus the playlists and ratings interface is pretty useless. I have tried the Cambridge Audio app too ,but again slow and not user friendly. Also with both of these, some songs are missing, with no rhyme or reason why.

Any help is massively appreciated.
