I bought a Sonos Amp yesterday. It connect to the Sonos network and the player shows on my Android Tablet Controller. However, when I try to plan the amp, the music cuts-out and then restarts on the next track.
Not only that, if I have the Amp plugged-in to electricity, the old Connect displays the very same behavior (dropped music, restarts on the next song). If I unplug the Amp from the electrical outlet, the Connect works fine.
Both the Connect and the Connect Amp are attached to the NAS via a 100 Mbps Ethernet network. I've tried different network connections and different network cables, and the result is the same.
I've also tried running the Connect Amp through my wireless network--and, again, the result is the same. (That is, dropped music on both the Connect and the Connect Amp.)
I'm at my wits end. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
PS - I'm a network engineer. I have tested the through-put of the Ethernet network and the router and it is a solid 100 Mbps.
