A few years ago my Atom had a meltdown and the screen was covered in horizontal lines, accompanied by some weird noises from the speakers. I was expecting to have to return it, but after turning it off and leaving it unplugged for half an hour it has worked normally ever since.
As a one-off this wasn’t a problem but if it persists I would definitely get your dealer involved.
Thanks Michel, I fear you’re right! I’m going to do an experiment using a different device to host the Naim app, which seems to be what triggers the problems- just in case it’s some kind of software glitch.
You may have already tried this but may be test from a complete power off position with an ethernet connection instead of hifi and nothing else connected to the unit (usb, cables to other components all disconnected)?
Is this a temporary disconnect? Or is it lost and you need to reestablish it manually?
I got issues when running continuous streams (like internet radio) while being on the 5 GHz band of my router.
The band/channel switches every few hours (due to weather radar avoidance or optimization) threw my Atom from the network, long enough for the stream to stop, before it reconnected.
I moved it to the 2.4 GHz band, and it’s been stable since.
