Quoted from Coltop:
I have uploaded a clip of my audio issue. I suspect there are multiple audio issues people talk about on this thread. What I've been hearing sounds like a digital problem.
* The distortion is periodic and does not always occur on loud audio.
* It does not happen when audio is not playing
* On two separate occasions, I heard the audio turn to complete static for 3-5 seconds (not in recording because i could not reproduce)

Anyone else have THIS issue?
EDIT #2: CGC got my speaker to me, I put it in and BAM, game is sounding perfect! I am very pleased now, it's almost like getting the game all over again
I am having this issue as well, but worse, and have had it out of the box, the distortion seems to get worse on mine as the volume is increased and just sounds terrible generally, was told by CGC Pinball Technician Ron Lukwinski that there would be a controller board with a software update to fix this, opened my support ticket on December 20th shortly after I received the game and was told on the 29th that said updated board would be sent to me, have been waiting ever since with no other word. I am a very patient man, but considering the time I have been waiting and the fact that this was a brand new $8000 machine, my patience is dwindling. Needless to say, I am not a happy individual in regards to this.
EDIT: I had grown tired of waiting and had spare time (probably should have done this sooner, but I wanted to meddle around in my brand new game as little as possible), so I swapped the speakers around to confirm/dis-confirm it being a defective/damaged speaker, the distortion moved with the suspected speaker, therefore I have confirmed my problem to be with the replaced speaker itself and not the software. I have contacted CGC and expect another replacement to be shipped.
