I have the latest version of the Powernode and after the latest firmware update, I noticed that if I start playing a track right after vacation mode, within the first 5 minutes of playback there will be a segment that is distorted for about 5 to 10 seconds. After this short period, everything returns to normal until I put the Powernode in vacation mode again. I am using playback via dedicated Roon server.
Vacation mode is only for occasional use, i.e. going away on holiday for two weeks. It actually takes longer to fully start compared to plugging a device into power. Suspect that all the services are not fully running when you start playing music.
Bluesound devices are designed to be left powered on 24/7 and when idle will drop into low power mode.
Is this a documented issue? This Powernode is used only every 3 weeks so I do put it into vacation mode and power it back up every time I use it.
Not an issue, just takes time to start from vacation mode.
Still does not address my issue and this only happens after the latest firmware update.
