    I posted this question in the Music area and got no response, so I thought I'd try posting it here:
    Two of my DVD-A discs, when played on my Toshiba 4700, produce a short audio drop whenever a track change occurs in what should be continuous sound (i.e., no breaks). The problem is most annoying on the Olivia Newton-John One Woman's Live Journey disc because there's an audio drop for all 21 tracks (well, except track 1 at the start of the disc). Granted, this is only a problem on titles where the music is continuous, but it's very irritating! [​IMG]
    I don't know if this is a problem with my player or just the result of bad authoring. I hope it's not an inherent flaw with the DVD-A format. I know that a lot of the early CD-R software couldn't avoid a pause between tracks; does anyone know if something similar is going on with DVD-A?

    What receiver are you using and what connection are you using? Digital? A few receivers have been found to cause drop-outs when playing back CD's connected via digital cables. Marantz 5200/6200/7200 and Onkyo 797 are two receivers I have noticed the problem from first hand experience.

    Alan,

    since you are using an analog connection, my guess is that this is not your recevier having a drop out. It's either the disc is mastered or a "feature" of your player

    I suggest you go through the search of the Hardware forum and use Toshiba 4700 as your keywords. There was a discussion of this player a week or so ago. If I recall, there were some criticism of audio drop outs with the Toshiba 4700. I may reassess my decision on what player to get.
