Crackling in Apple Lossless with UM3X

  1. deftonez
    Hi guys, I have imported my CDs via apple lossless ever since Ive gotten my UM3x, but some tracks still have the same crackling effect in the highs like when you produce the S sound. Im using an iPod Classic 160gb bought in 2010, and no Amp no DAC.

    Can you reproduce this sound error with another set of IEMs?

    I experienced this with my UM-1s before, that led me to the upgrade of the UM3x. Is the problem with my CDs?
  4. AstroTurf
    It could be...
    Or it could be the pc that your are ripping with.
    I have had this type of problem with a slower pc. I then switched to a faster pc, reripped, and the distortion is gone.

    Thanks for the advice, Im using a portable CD Drive on my laptop, does that affect? I might try it with my desktop later on.
  6. AstroTurf
    I think it will.
    Good Luck, Jim

    It might be a problem of bad mastering too. I sometimes encounter crackling when listening to some music.
