Sound Cuts Out - OS X

Hi, I’m playing on my dedicated sandbox server with minimal addons and every time I join, after a minute or so, all game audio cuts out for no apparent reason. All audio on my computer continues to work, and I can’t hear anyone’s mics, or any game audio.

The only log message I see around cut out that is Steam related in my computer console is this, and I’m pretty sure it’s unrelated.

Here are all of the game console logs before audio loss.

Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: gpurt)
fem!Mituna: See now I can't hear anyone

I have searched and searched for anyone having a similar problem and I can’t find anything. I also can’t find any options or settings in Steam or Garry’s Mod that might remedy this situation.

I unfortunately cannot pinpoint audio loss on these logs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Note: I am also suffering occasional crashes, as I apparently just did with hl2_osx no longer responding. However, this may be unrelated to the audio issue.
