Poor transition between tracks when using PLEX in SONOS APP

SiegridSiegrid Members, Plex Pass Posts: 7 Plex Pass

When playing music via the PLEX media option within the SONOS APP there is an issue with the transition between tracks. It happens every time between tracks/songs. The best way I can explian it is that it sounds like right at the end of the track it picks up a .5 second portion of a track (not sure what track - last, next, other) plays it and then lauches into the next track. It happens between every track transition and is just a bad way to start off every new song. I am running the latest version of the SONOS app and PlayBar firmware. PLEX media server is on my LAN.

    …same…ALAC files.

    So annoying, as I love just being able to stick with Plex for recent plays, recent additions, etc.

    This happens for me to but not all the time. I think you can mitigate it by turning on cross fade in the Sonos app settings. That seems to have helped. I know some purists might not like it but I've found it noice to have the songs cross fade between themselves.

    I think crossfade is just covering up the problem, since the next song is starting at 0 volume, allowing the erroneous audio segment to not be heard.

    Totally agree, that's why I said mitigate and not fix.

    I too have this issue with Apple Lossless (MP4) files. It doesn't seem to happen with MP3 files.

    Yep - I'm using Apple Lossless. Appreciate the recommendation to mitigate the issue but would love a fix soon.
