    I’ve had a lot of success with the mesh setup over the past few months. This week using airplay 2 im seeing single speakers drop randomly for milliseconds and then resume. Sometime they fall out of sync during the process. pausing the airplay 2 stream for a moment will typically regroup things until the next hiccup.

    If I drop back to a single router the speakers work flawlessly. I wonder if the mesh arrangement is causing some timing related issues. Anyone else running mesh and airplay?

    In my case both the audio source and mesh backhaul are wired.

    I’ve never tried AirPlay over mesh specifically, but I will say that AirPlay is very finicky over WiFi. I have had better success limiting traffic to be over 5 GHz exclusively.
