Clicks between songs
#1
Sad 
In moOde 4.1 I get a relatively loud click or pop in the gap between one track and the next when playing from a saved playlist. It happens most of the time but not every time. Shuffle is On, gapless playback is off.
When playing tracks chosen directly from a CD or folder this does not happen.

I've just tried a my old moOde 3.8.4 using the same music and the same playlist. It also produces a pop between tracks but they are very quiet, almost inaudible.

Has anyone else experienced this?

How are you playing tracks directly from a CD with moOde?

Oops! - I mean playing a group of tracks which used to be on a physical CD but are now in a directory on a hard drive which I have selected from the Browse panel.

Rightly or wrongly I think of this as playng tracks directly rather than via an m3u playlist stored in var/lib/mpd/playlists.

Sorry for the confusion.

If the audio glitches are intermittent it suggests possibly the glitches are in the tracks themselves, maybe due to bad rips.

Otherwise, IME a lot of the DAC's based on Burr Brown PCM5xxx chips seem to have an audio bump whenever the audio output is closed/opened for example when skipping to another track. There is also the possibility of an MPD bug.

Doesn't look like the the above bug reports have made it into an MPD release yet

The clicks are not in the tracks. I can play the same tracks directly or via the same playlist on another system using foobar2000 on a PC but it also uses a different amplifier/dac.

Perhaps the dac is the problem. The problems occur on a system using a Quad Vena amp which has a Cirrus Logic CS 4398 dac.

I will be surprised and shocked if it is the dac. It seems like such a basic fault.

I also have a HiFiBerry dac that I can add to the pi and connect to the Quad's analogue input as a trial.
