A good few years ago, when the Squeezebox Touch was all the rage, various tweaks were recommended by Klaus (Soundcheck) some of which involved altering the settings on the server. Over the years upgrades to LMS including 7.9 probably mean you have reverted to the basic settings.
So spend 15 minutes changing them and experience a worthwhile and free improvement. Glad I did it. Of course all the other players that have adopted LMS can also benefit.
