Constant audio problems

I have constant “drops out” of audio. A popup appears as if I was changing audio device, but I am not, and I get an audio drop for some miliseconds, it happens incosistenly and it is extremely irritating. As I might not be explaining myself properly I have recorded it. It happens in second 2-3 on this video: Imgur: The magic of the Internet

Just in case anybody understand this: http://alsa-project.org/db/?f=31611c7faba6a99b60e4f461b43e30e68edb8364

I am using a Realtek ALC892, from a dq77mk. Sorry to post things in different messages, but when I find something that could be useful, I paste it here, and it is taking me a while to figure it out.

Some information about your hardware would be helpful, I understand the frustrations but reading a comment that does not provide any information about the hardware in question leaves us with little clues as to how to begin troubleshooting.

I clicked the Imgur link and nothing show up. Just a page that says it cannot load Imgur.

With all that being said:

  1. Is this Bluetooth device?
  2. Headphones or Earbuds w/ Device Make/Model?
  3. Audio drivers if installed?
  4. Device Laptop/PC make/model

Took a minute and still going through some of the info from the alsa link

At this point, it’s better if you answered the questions I pose above. . .

Sorry, but I have not found anything like a device administrator to give more info and I am not familiar at all with fedora.

  1. It is a speaker connected via cable to the audio output of the motherboard. The motherboard is a dq77mk, which has an ALC892 if I am not mistaken.
  2. The speaker is a soundblaster and it is bluetooth. I can use it connected via USB but the problem is when I use it connected to audio jack of the motherboard.
  3. Vanilla fedora, I have drivers installed for the nvidia card.
  4. The mother board is a dq77mk

The imgur video shows me playing a song in the background with the problem, in which for a milisecond the device disconnects and connects, similar as to when I plug something into the front jack for headphones, but way shorter. It happens randomly and very often.
