I’ve been singing the praises of my Prime 4 to all my friends, but after the past 2 days I’m having big regrets about that. I was playing a track and - bam! - stops right in the middle for no reason. This was on channel 1. If I pause it and press play again, it doesn’t play. If I touch the jog wheel or push the (1) selector button, it continues to play as long as I am pressing down. Likewise if I press and hold the Track Skip buttons, the track continues to play. If I reload the track, it freezes after only a couple seconds. The track plays fine on the other channels. Right now this is happening with a track loaded from Tidal, but this happened yesterday with a track on my USB stick. Oh and right now 10 minutes later it just continued playing where it left off, and stopped again 30 seconds later.
For weeks I’ve also had the problem of, if I switch a channel from Line In to Controller, sometimes I press the Play button but no sound comes out of that channel. I usually run aux on channel 4 where I have this problem most often, but I’ve had it on channel 3 sometimes when channel 4 isn’t working either.
Firmware is 1.5.2 and the controller is in mint condition
These are major reliability issues and I will never trust this device at an event. Very very disappointed. Glad I held onto my Pioneer gear. ~burn~
