I have a C388 with Bluesound MDC module powering an indoor system, and a Vault 2.0 connected to a NAD 2ch power amp powering outdoors. For two weeks now, my Tidal stream ONLY ON THE C388 INSIDE SYSTEM (outside using the Vault has no issues) has been giving me grief, pausing every 30 seconds or so on HIFI setting, and every 10 seconds on a Masters-quality stream. For 6 months since getting the new system this has NEVER happened! I have a new 1GB switch (other old switches have the same issue) new Cat5 cabling (swapping cables makes zero difference) I have a consistent 50Mbps internet stream, so this is not an issue and the Vault 2.0 can stream all day and night in MQA quality and not skip a beat, through the same switch. Interestingly, the MDC ethernet cable glows orange on the switch, indicating a 10/100Mbps connection, as opposed to the Vault which glows green at 1GB connection. Not sure if this is relevant or not, but the outside system will never pause. Ive rebooted and reset Bluos. Ive updated to the latest Bluos firmware (3.2.10) as well as the C388 (1.64) but to no avail. Using Spotify and FLAC files from the Vault cause no issues, its only the Tidal streams. Im thinking my MDC module may be faulty, as the Vault works perfectly on the same network
