while testing I recognized a kind of volume drop using two or more loudspeakers in a normal group. Last testing showed that it‘s with only two grouped devices, doesn‘t matter if both are Flex2i or Pulse2i.
Testing scenario is playing flac from Vault2i on two grouped loudspeakers, both connected by WLAN. I place them in front of me and I sit in the middle. I setup volume so both sound identically loud and play the music.
At the beginning it sounds like a stereo setup with a wide soundstage, all fine.
While playing suddenly it sounds different and the middle of the soundstage seems to move to one side.
This changes after some time again and it gets fine again.
This can also change by pause the playback and play again, or skip the track or changing time on timebar.
I know this kind of setup should be a fixed stereo group, maybe there it doesn‘t happen. But...
If you setup a system in a bigger open area, for example kitchen one, dining one and living room one player. They all should be independent but when grouped you get these moving soundstages what sounds strange.
btw. first I thought smartgain could be the reason, but it‘s off now.
not shure if it‘s WLAN related, will test with LAN asap...
