Hello everyone,

I bought a pair of second hand Genelec 8341A from one guy,and them has some weird problem.

When I connect then with AES input,it will suddenly lost sound for some seconds during playing music.

I tried with a pair of Dante AVIO AES3 adapter and a cheap no-brand XMOS USB interface.

When use AVIO and connect them saprately (without using the AES out port on the speaker),

The problem will come out when sample rate are higher than 48khz.

I have a nuprime dac-9 for analog input, and it dosen't has problem on any AES singal input mentioned above (AVIO/USB interface,any sample rate).

Did anyone encounter similar problem before?

hmm, are you using AES cables or normal analog XLR cables?
On short runs, it's usually okay to use analog cables, for longer runs, you should get dedicated AES cables.
