roughly the 1st second of every track is fading in
The USB specification states that whenever a device is not in real use (like when stopped playback), the device must be set in what's called 'alt setting 0', which does not reserve/consume any USB bandwidth. This frees up USB bandwidth to be used by other devices. This is what we have always been doing. Although not really relevant on Android or this app since it's unlikely that you'll use other USB devices, but we'd like to play by the rules nevertheless. Furthermore, it may consume less power. On desktops, you'll see that it often does not switch to 'alt setting 0' though, perhaps only when the PC goes into 'sleep' mode.
When the device has been switched from 'alt setting 0' to another 'alt setting', the Chord devices fade in audio, probably to defeat issues with DoP (DSD-over-PCM) signal detection.
