I own the following config:
HDD <USB> Powered USB hub <USB> RPi <HDMI> AVR <HDMI/DVI> 22" monitor.
AVR is a Denon 2313, I use its remote with Flirc, to select tracks in the menu on the monitor.
I use Openelec to mainly play music from 16/44,1 stereo to 24/48-88.2-96-192 multichannel.
When I play 24/96 multichannel FLAC, I get drops in audio. I asked to the developer to help but he can't replicate my issue.
I tried with Raspbmc and get the same issue.
So I am looking for other player softwares to check if it's working with the same config and file format (FLAC 24/96 multichannel).
