The type A should move channels relatively quickly, and clients do not disassociate usually - in my experience.
Are all clients dropping for you? Not sure how, but out of my house, the only device that drops is a Sky HD box. 2 macbooks, many windows laptops, 2 PS4s, 2 Apple TVs, 5 iPhones do not drop out when it switches using the smart wireless switching.
Do you have the latest firmware version?
I find the type A works perfectly fine for me.
