Nasty crackle, spit and pop during playback. Does not seem to occur when playing streamed music, mostly from downloaded music. Does not occur at all using WinAmp, the music source that can not be mentioned!! or Windows Media player, only Spotify.
Increases dramatically when mouse movement occurs.
My Question or Issue
I have separated the audio and video feeds, tried chokes and about everything else my 50 years of experience with computers/sound has suggested. Am disgusted enough to tell Spotify to pack it in.
