Shoutcast stream buffering only when certain songs play


I recently switched over to the latest v2 versions of shoutcast DSP and DNAS.
after doing a clean install on a new server.

Version Info:

DSP: v2.3.5 (build 222)
DNAS: v2.5.5.733

The problem I have is that some songs when streamed (via Shoutcast)
now sound choppy (break-up), and make the listeners player buffer.
While other songs in the playlist play and sound fine with no buffering.

(FYI. If I copy these songs that cause the buffering and play them in
WinAmp on another PC they play fine).

The strange thing is that when I was streaming using the old
v1.9# DSP, and 1.9.8 DNAS, this never happened all songs streamed fine
with no buffering or audio playback problems.

I have re-encoded ALL songs (MP3's), in my playlist to have the same
bitrate and frequency i.e.:

Bitrate: 256kbps
Frequency: 44100hz

As previously the songs where at differing bitrates and frequency's. As I thought
that this may be causing the problem, but since doing this it has not helped, and
I still get the choppy audio and buffering on certain songs.

Does anyone know why this may be happening and can offer any advice
on how I can sort this problem out? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
