Clicks and pops playing high res files

Something to share that might help…

I experienced problems playing high resolution files, including DSD, because of clicks and pops (USB DAC).

In the settings, I have found it was possible to change the size of the audio buffer.

May be stupidely, I initially though increasing the size to the max values (12 mB and 40%) would help.

In fact, it is the opposite. Decreasing to 8 and 10% allows perfect reading of the files. I am happy with the result, but I do not understand the logic…
