I’m using a Melco N100 with the Melco App on my iPad for control. I’m using Minimserver.
The app gives the option of enabling gapless playback either by app or by renderer or both. Can someone please explain what this means? I’ve tried enabling the ‘by app’ option and it doesn’t appear to work. It does work with the ‘by renderer’ option enabled. I read a warning somewhere that some renderers or DACs can behave erratically (whatever this means exactly) with this option enabled.
Can someone please explain what all this means? is there any sound quality penalty with some equipment by enabling gapless? Obviously for live albums you will want gapless, but do people normally leave it enabled for everything? It seems preferable to the long pauses between tracks.
