I just bought two Pioneer new Av receivers (827 & 922) to upgrade my livingroom and Cinema/music rooms to internet time. I found convinient software ( Airfoil) to feed my premium spotify to Airplay. However in the sound quality I notice clear distortions time to time with some songs. ( For example Dire: Money for nothing @ around 1:50 just after the intro minor clicks and continue through whole song)
These are more obvious when feeding 10kHz sine signal in through Pioneer Airplay. I get lot of clicking of the sound on top of the signal. While feeding the same signal through PS3/CD just perfectly fine sine signal. Studied it bit more thoroughly and did tests with/without WIFI, tried different routers and the result is always the same: Both of the Pioneer AVR:s produce the clicking while fed through Airplay. It happens with different software also (Itunes). Tested even my computer with my friends Airport Express and it works wonderfully with no clicks. It just leaves me no other choices but to identify the problem to Pioneer AVR Airplay soft/hardware.
It would be nice to know if this is in all of the Pioneer Airplays?Easy to chechk just with any 10kHz sine from the internet. It takes place with all of them.
