Thats a sweet machine, one I plan to obtain for myself. I would:
1) Try a different player. Maybe a free Roon trial. Will Quicktime play a file?
2) Not sure if Itunes will “see” music on an attached drive. But if Quicktime plays badly from your ssd library, see how it plays from an attached drive. Maybe an issue with the buffers/cache on that local ssd?
3) The mystery is why streamed music plays well but local music doesnt. Try a rip to Alac just to test. (Though you say the files play well from a iPod Classic. )
Good luck and report back.
This is the most important part:
Odd thing is I don’t have the problem when using the computer for on line streaming, just ITunes when playing back the AIFF copies of the CD’s.
If it works for streaming then it can't be hardware.
Try exporting one of the AIFF files and playing it from another laptop.
Thanks for the replies. I found the problem to be the Apple I-Tunes settings. I had the cross fade setting on, and MIDI actualy set for up sampling the playback and did not realize it. I also added Bit Perfect. I should had done each thing one by one, but I just changed and added all at one time. I alos used the Apple power supp;y while playing back. I was just using the MacBook Pro battery since the cheap wall warts are none for being noisy.
Play back is fine now. Thanks to all.
