squeezelite + pulse

I'm building a multi room audio system with Raspberry PI and the HifiBerry Amp. The goal is to either select internet radio (openhab with squeezelite plugin) or bluetooth streaming (bluez) per room. I have to use Pulseaudio to allow both applications to share the HifiBerry amp, otherwise I get a 'device in use' error.

This setup works as long as I don't use the HifiBerry amp configuration but just stick to the onboard audio with snd_bcm2835. As soon as I enable the HifiBerry, squeezelite starts to sound choppy while the bluetooth streaming still gives perfect results.

I'm not entirely sure where to look, as I think it's either a squeezelite or PulseAudio configuration issue. Any ideas?
