Hi Heiner,

I stumbled across this post while exploring wireless issues with pi3 and dac Pro
and felt it was only fair to update my comments re: ma2play vs other software so other users make an informed choice!

This was posted on official site:

WLAN problems with RPI3

1142Cz_R3_Auf_aufmWe received some reports of WLAN problems with the HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro. After several hours of testing a lot of different releases with different HiFiBerry sound cards, we can confirm that there is some kind of problem with the DAC+ Pro and the onboard WLAN. While it seems to work for some users it isn’t for others.

The problem only affects the HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro and only the onboard WLAN module of the Raspberry Pi 3.

You have can use the following workarounds:

Use the Ethernet interface instead of the onboard WLAN
Use an external USB WLAN stick
Update December 2016:
The problem seems to occur only on specific WiFi channels. As a fix you can set your WLAN to a fixed channel other than the channels 1, 6, 11 and 14.

It explains a lot doesnt it?

Kind regards,
