that I suspect was somewhere between France and the West Coast, not necessarily local to my ISP, but those were cured even before I go fiber.
Whenever I stream an MQA Master on TIDAL the fan on my MacBook Air comes on and the whole laptop gets warm, but THAT'S another issue altogether.
It does make me think that MQA decoding won't be done on the Pi any time soon. Maybe in LMS wherever it's running?
I use Tidal on my 27" iMac and it doesn't even show as a blip in system monitor. It is a quad core 3.3mhz i5. My Macbook Air OTOH can barely keep up.
...and next door to France, I do very occasionally get the odd drop out (well under a second) from Qobuz. It sounds a bit similar to a tick when replaying an LP. It also happens occasionally with BBC radio though infrequently enough for me not to consider it much of a problem.
As it happens with various streaming sources it is clearly not the originator's fault but a local problem e.g. when demand is high. It is difficult to work out where the fault lies exactly as my connection maintains 80mbs consistently which is well beyond the demands of audio streaming.
Anyway I agree with the OP's point that streaming cannot be as reliable as local storage.
