Random Pauses with 5 seconds remainaing

As the title says I experience random pauses while playing a playlist.

Play list is on random and repeat.

I haven’t been able to determine if it always the same songs, but will start tracking that.

It seems to happen mltiple times per day and it always seems to be 5 seconds remaining.

If anyone can shed some light on this issue that would be great.

Using Rasberry pi 2+ with a chinese hiberry DAC copy.

I had Avery similar problem and cured it by reducing the size of the buffer down quite low.
Hope this helps, if not I’m sure someone will be along soon with better knowledge.

Reduced the buffer down, will keep an eye on it to see if it still happens.
