AirPlay hissing during playback?

Liberty Prime

Hi there. I just bought an Arcam Rplay (streamer) and I’ve been testing it for a few days. The thing is whenever I stream via Airplay, there is some hissing/cracks in most of the songs. I did several tests with my headphones and headphones amp, and with my stereo with the same results. I tried streaming music from YouTube via airplay to discard Apple Music being the problem, but hissing was still there. It doesn’t happen when streaming via the Rplay app (Play Fi), tested it with my home server and Deezer, there was no hissing whatsoever. Have you experienced anything similar with AirPlay? Thanks
