  1. Audio stutters/pops/crackling


    I don't know if it's windows causing this issue, or if it's my hardware. I have checked with DPC Latency Checker and it shows me all green. I have also reinstalled the driver and the OS, but none have worked. The issue seems to start when the computer has been running for a few hours. All audio will start to get some random crackling/pop noises to it, or stuttering if you will call it that. This is starting to get really annoying, and I really don't know what could cause this. The hardware is realtively new (bought May 2019). I don't think I have had this problem before some update for Windows 10.
    Other things i have tried is using both frontpanel/backpanel for the aux cable. I have also tried with optical cable, with the same result. Current format is 24bits, 48khz. Also tried with the DVD quality and CD quality ones, but same result.. Speakers and headphones also the same issue. So im basically back to thinking this has something to do with Windows. Any suggestions as to how to solve this?

    My computer specs:

    • Asus ROG Strix B360-F
    • i5-9400F
    • Nvidia GTX1080-TI
    • HyperX Fury DDR4 2666MHz 16GB (Slot 3 & 4)

    Audio Pop/Stutter/Crackle When Stopping Audio

    I've disabled audio enhancements and tried changing audio formats, but the problem persists.

    I spent two days looking for a solution and I tried literally everything.

    The best I can do is explain the problem a bit further.

    Basically when audio is played on the PC there's a pop right at the beginning. Playing/pausing a video whether it's a local file or a Youtube video does the same thing (happens randomly). I made sure it's not a hardware problem by trying my Schiit stack on both my laptop and PC. After that I tried both the onboard audio of my laptop and PC. They both had the same problem. I even reinstalled windows just in case, but that didn't help. This started 3 days ago and I'm really confused and trying to figure out what is causing this. You can check out what I wrote in the thread at the beginning of the list of things I tried.


    Here's a pic of what you asked, and thanks again for replying!

    Audio Pop/Stutter/Crackle When Stopping Audio

    I've been having this issue for the past two days, and I've tried everything to no avail.
    Basically this is the issue:
    I get a pop/crackle when I suddenly stop audio.
    What I'm running:

    • Schiit Uber Stack.
    • Win 10 PC.
    What I've tried:

    • Tried onboard audio, still get the problem.
    • Tried onboard audio on both my PC and laptop, still get the problem.
    • Tried my stack on both PC and laptop, still get the problem.
    • Tried using a DPC latency checker, everything seems fine there.
    • Tried different headphones just in case, wasn't the issue.
    • Tried changing audio format, still get the problem.
    • +literally tried 99 other things *Tongue

    That pop is happening when I suddenly stop the sound effect. I get that pop when a Windows notification shows up. My friend's voice on Discord also pops every couple of seconds (100% sure it's not his mic).
    Any help is appreciated!
    (Just to clarify, I made sure it's not a hardware issue, so something within Win 10 is screwing with me)

    I WILL LITERALLY PAYPAL ANYONE WHO FINDS ME A SOLUTION $10 *chuckle

    (Yup, I'm losing my mind and I'm that desperate lol)

    Crackle/Popping Sound When Playing Audio + Stuttering Video Games

    I just built a PC:

    • ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-H GAMING
    • Intel i7 8700k
    • EVGA Geforce GTX 1080 FTW 8 GB
    • Corsair RMx Series, RM750x 750w
    • Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SSD
    • Seagate 2 TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD
    • Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200 MHz
    • Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    Not currently OC'd, default specs.

    Whenever I play audio (YouTube, foobar, VLC player, video games) I can hear a popping/crackling sound whenever I start or stop it. It's like the small crackle sound you hear when you plug in headphones/speakers. This also happens during playback, although not randomly – it's usually a specific part of the audio/video file that causes the popping. I can even find the particular "pop" spot and replay it.

    Additionally, whenever I'm playing a video game I get random frame skips at random intervals. This happens in all my video games – WoW, Subnautica, Fallout 4, Dark Souls 3.

    Originally I had the ASUS Prime z370-A which I thought to be the issue. But I replaced it with the ROG Strix and I can still hear the popping/crackling and the frame skips still happen.

    Does anyone have experience with this issue? This is my first build over $1k and I'm very distressed that I cannot find the problem. Could it be the hard drives? RAM, maybe?
