I'm having the same issue with my N20. It started yesterday. Will reinstall the app to see if that resolves the issue.

I should be receiving my N20 by the end of the month. I will provide some initial feedback once I have a few hours on it. It will be replacing an Antipodes DX Gen 2.

LessLoss Firewall for Loudspeakers
In my system there was a burn in period. I heard what they did immediately, but it took about 48 hours for the music to flow naturally. They continued to improve after that very gradually.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

I’ve been using these since mid-December.  The 6 moons review is spot on.  The only way these will leave my system is if LessLoss comes out with an improved version or I purchase speakers in the future that already have them built in. 
Jeff Rowland Daemon – Reviewing The JRDG Superintegrated Flagship Amplifier
Guido, great write up. Do you have any information on the DAC?  Specifically, does it play DSD and to what resolution and what is max resolution for pcm?   
$30K DAC in a $70K system - wise or ridiculous?
If you are considering a Lampizator DAC I recommend you start with the Golden Gate 2.  The GG2 is crazy good and the ability to tube roll enables you to dial it in to your musical preferences. As @audioman58 indicated earlier the Final Touch Audio... 
Horn Speaker Recommendations
I have a short list of horn speakers I am interested in.  The only ones I have not seen mentioned in this thread are from Viking Acoustics.  They are in the US. You may want to check them out.
