It's been almost 2 years since I last posted anything to the Community, primarily because I have had 2 years of trouble-free listening but all of a sudden the gremlins are back. I have 4 Bose SoundTouch Units - An Original Series Soundtouch Wave (Airplay enabled; no Bluetooth); An Original Series Soundtouch 30 (Airplay enabled; no Bluetooth) and 2 X Soundtouch Wireless Links connected via Aux ports to a circa 1996 Bose Acoustic Wave and a circa 1998 B&O Overture Sound System. All have the latest updates, as have all the devices that use the ST App - PCs, iPads & Phones. My WiFi is strong throughout the house (all Soundtouch Units show full strength) and it's also fast (55mbs). I use Deezer as my main music provider and have a Premium Subscription.
My issue is this:
Every 2 minutes or so when streaming Deezer it drops out for 5-10 seconds and then comes back in where it left off, as if it's buffering. It does this whether using one unit, all units or a selection of units, regardless of which is the lead Unit. Whilst I can use the Deezer App and stream via AIrplay to my SoundTouch Wave and SoundTouch 30 Units, that's not an option for the Wireless Link Units, and in any event I prefer to use the SoundTouch App if I can.
I have seen some older posts concerning this issue from about two years ago when it was thought to be down to the higher quality streaming rate that Deezer use compared with Spotify for example (312 bps -v- 256 bps, respectively) but with my Broadband speed this should not be an issue and indeed was not an issue until about a week ago. Earlier answers from Brandon (Bose) indicated this would be addressed in the next update to the ST App in 2016 - that was long ago and there have been updates since.
I have tried deleting and re-installing speakers and the app, but all to no avail.
The dropping out is becoming very annonying - help and advice from the Community &/or the Bose team would be appreciated.
