Cambridge Audio 851N and macOS Monterey Airplay bug - anyone else?


Novice Member
I've got a Cambridge Audio 851N which among other things is used as an Apple Airplay target. Since upgrading to a M1 MacBook and macOS Monterey I occasionally get a frozen status bar in Apple Music where tracks continue to play but the time freezes and new tracks are not registered as having played in history. This only happens when connecting to the 851N on its own, if I simultaneously connect another Airplay device the time bar starts to move again. Therefore it seems as though the 851N is not playing nicely with the latest implementation of Airplay on new Macs.

Any other 851N owners seen anything like this??
