Audio Problems: Disconnects, device disappears, bugs out

Level 3
Sooooo. Something is up with my rift. 

When im playing after a while i either get some cracks on the sound or it simple goes again for a second and comes back, sometimes it just goes away completely.

When that happens i get a message in oculus home saying "Audio device changed, please restart"

Checking the device manager and Playback devices, i see that the Audio Rift device either freezes (have to disable, enable to get sound) or it disappears and im left with the speakers.

Any info on what that could be? I switched USB ports, tried to use CD quality audio on the rift audio device etc, still getting it after some minutes of playing...

Hmm using an external powered USB hub seems to have helped. I guess this is some power issue.
