I’d love to know why Apple’s been sitting on this for the better part of a year. Also, have you had an opportunity to see if they’ve addressed these issues in the Yosemite beta?
I just about blew my eardrums out this morning when I clicked “Re-sync audio buffers” in an attempt to clear up a low volume issue & DPS crashed. I’d killed coreaudiod prior to that, but it didn’t resolve the low volume, which wouldn’t adjust even though the on-screen volume indicated otherwise.
FWIW, I experienced some sporadic audio drop-outs in Spotify this morning, which I hadn’t noticed before. It hasn’t occurred in the past couple of hours though.
