After a lot of research about that KitKat 4.4.2 bug i found the cause of the problem. The audio glitching bug is because of hotplugging of the cpu cores. A common bug, as someone told at Xperia Z forum section. To fix this, disable mp decision through Trickster MOD (Search for it at Play Store). This should fix it. But this also means your cpu no longer shuts off cores when not needed. But it shouldn't affect your battery usage much... At Trickster MOD the Mp Decision is located at "Specific" tab. You ONLY need root to make it work!!! Tested by me!

You can re-enable MusicFX and Sound Enhancement without problem now

P.S. If you restart your tablet you have to disable Mp Decision again cause it will return to the default value.

Do you have .FLAC music files in your tablet?? Cause the dropouts/music skipping is caused by KitKat native FLAC decoder... You can try to download the PlayerPro music player from Play Store. After install, go to Settings->Audio->Download DSP pack. Install the pack from Play Store, run the installed application and then follow the simple instructions at the second tab (swipe left). Hope it works!!!!

It does not work for me on Spotify or Soundcloud apps. I think the problems appeared after rooting...

If files are in .FLAC format then there is an issue with FLAC decoder. Check the post #3 above!!

I found the root cause of my problem. It is related to my /etc/hosts file (~10MB). I guess it is too large (mooab)

Thanks for your support!
