In Reply to: I used to have problems with QOBUZ... posted by Ivan303 on June 20, 2017 at 16:26:35:
...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.
