Well, part of not getting interruptions when playing audio is for the
kernel to have low latency, part of it is that the app itself has to run
with realtime privileges. If the second part is not happening a playback
process can be preempted by other processes and quality will suffer -
and that does not depend on the kernel being low latency or not
(although of course a lower latency kernel will help). That's probably
what's happening to you. 

What exact kernel are you running?
