This affects old and new TimeCapsules and Airport Extremes. Once you update to the new firmware (or buy a new unit with the 7.6 firmware) you will find that there is a connect-disconnect-reconnect process going on behind the scenes which causes a delay on the stream and thus the buffering.
The simple way around this is to downgrade the firmware to 7.5.2.
I went from 7.5.2 to 7.6 and had nothing but buffering problems, when I went back to 7.5.2 they went away. You can see the connection log on the Airport/TimeCapsule and it bounces up and down throughout - it seems to be a connection timeout which has been added for iCloud compatibility.
7.6.1 Firmware has just been released, but I am avoiding that at the moment until I get a clear couple of days to test.
Hope this helps.
I've used 7.5.2 and 7.6. throughout and haven't had any problems like that (even over wifi)...
