RE: Arcam rDAC/apple airport express

The Airport Express (assuming that's the one you mean) has high levels of jitter which causes problems for some DACs. I guess that the Arcam is more fussy than the Cambridge.

 

Kind regards

How much jitter does an Apple Airport Express put out?

How does jitter cause the music to stop momentarily?

This sounds like a streaming issue and momentary drop out, possibly caused by a process on your computer as you stream, or possibly limited bandwidth if there is already a lot of traffic on the network.
