while playing music directly through my laptops internal speaker or through apple tv2 music skips (pauses for a 2-10 seconds) for no apparent reason, before continuing playback.  the problem happens at least once in every song, sometimes more and is extremely frustrating.


it is not a problem with the files in my library because playback is fine with the same files through iphone.


i'm running osx 10.8.4 on a 2 year old 15" macbook pro 2GHz intel core i7 with 8GB memory (dont think this is a ram issue either as problem persists with all aplications closed and 8 GB should be plenty!).  theres also around 150 or 200GB of space available on my hard drive, so its not that.


any suggestions on what may be cusing this or how to solve the problem would be much appreciated.



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), itunes v 11.0.5
