This log snippet is next to useless. Generally speaking, I would
suggest to anyone that they never trim logs - there is all sorts of
relevant information about your system and setup that is included
earlier. Furthermore, you've provided about 3 hundredths of a second
of logs from the very beginning of playback which can't possibly cover
the pause that you are trying to isolate.

These are not important.

You need to upload that log somewhere (and provide the link!),
highlight the timestamp around which you actually see an unexpected
pause and provide some useful information about your system (os,
network, storage, file systems etc etc).
