AirPlay skipping sound with Volumio + Tinkerboard + HifiBerry DAC

I've got a brand new ASUS Tinkerboard with a HifiBerry DAC+ Pro, running on Volumio 2.349. Audio playback is fine from local files or files from a NAS, but playback via AirPlay gives skipping sound (music for a second or so, then a break of 1 or 2 seconds, etc.). AirPlay works fine if I use the built-in headphones out on the Tinkerboard instead of the HifiBerry. The issue is thus isolated to AirPlay via HifiBerry DAC.

Any ideas what is going on? Is this a bug? Any ideas how to dig deeper to understand the source of the problem?
