Quoted from modfather:
So....what is the fix on the crackling sound ? My pro does that along with my AS pro. My GB prem does that at high volumes as well , what gives man ? Does Stern build there games that they cant handle their own power at high volumes and causes the amp to get overloaded and start clipping on and off ?
Even though the hardware is at such a tight tolerance
Amp low power and speakers very basic.
I believe Audio mixing levels may be incorrect.
I would not be in a hurry to upgrade replace hardware at this time
and expect the problem will be sorted out through code.
Hopefully there is an audio guru at Stern that will deliver incredible sound.
