Thanks both of you, i was using a 24/96 file and i am using 1.0 , that is very interesting. Maybe after the next firmware is released i will try again. In the mean time, i will measure the ohms when i get home from work, i do have a multimeter at home. Glad i asked, hope they aren't near shorted, i just got a new cable, which also may contribute, i am not sure. Never got to use it with the stock cable. Hopefully just a firmware issue that will be resolved down the line.
It is a bit more than just stutters, it is total dropouts, but they only occur after screen goes dark, and stop when you turn it back on or change the volume.
