Looks like 2x pcm's are connecting:

pcm0: <HDA Codec: Unknown Codec>
pcm0: <HDA Driver Revision: 20071129_0050>
pcm1: <HDA Codec: Realtek ALC885>
pcm1: <HDA Driver Revision: 20071129_0050>

Was this happening on old kernel? The problem still shouldn't happen but might help explain
difference e.g. if new hw is now supported but wasn't before & driver is getting confused
Also if not desired, you might try switching these off where possible to see if that helps

Also - have you tried other players? What about running audacity with 'rtprio?' or a higher nice value?

Sometimes playback issues can be software or load related.

Sometimes the DAC's get in a wierd state & need some extra punches -
I typically have been doing cold reboots (full power off) if I lose sound during a run.

Also - this should go to bugs@
