Hi there,


I've only started experiencing this problem.


Playback music locally on the iMac, audio out of the speakers goes out for 2-5 second at a time. The song keeps 'playing' though.


I can stream audio and video to the ATV2 from the iMac perfectly fine.


I've downloaded and installed the latest version of iTunes. Still the problem appears.


Restarted. Reset PRAM. Verified the disk in Disk Utility (no problems reported).


It is quite frustrating - as I like to listen to music while I work.


Imac Specs:

iMac 27" - Core i5, 8gb Ram.

Latest updates on OS X 10.6.7 and iTunes installed.


Only other programs open are InDesign CS4 (a basic document), Mail, Safari, Illustrator and Photoshop.


Activity Monitor shows over 5gb of ram free. and nothing using more than 5% of the CPU..

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
