    I was using Atmos tonight after having installed and uninstalled Equalizer Apo, and it actually did sound better than I remembered. I'll have to do more testing, but it sounded promising. Could have just been my mind playing tricks on me, and it's still not right, but maaaaaaybe my problem is fixed.

    I'm getting robostatic sounds/artefacts from time to time during The Last of US. I don't know what causes this. Rebooting the G6 doesn't help. It's also very well powered and usually works flawlessly. Did so for the whole playthrough of Horizon Zero Dawn.

    G6 optical out to Gungnir Multibit. Anyone else got this problem or know about this?
  3. Mad Lust Envy Contributor
    You make sure it's not the Gungnir acting up? I haven't heard an issue like that other than when I accidentally go from spdif direct to direct.

    Try listening to the G6 directly, no Gung in the mix. It should whittle it down.

    The Gungnir is fine. I'm using the G6 for the PC all the time (with the Gungnir) and I never had issues with over 50hours of Horizon on the PS4. Neither does it act up with Dark Souls 3 (Ps4) or Ratchet and Clank. (PS4).

    Do you have the Last of Us to do a short testrun?

    I'd have to re-download it, and the ps4 would take hours getting it downloaded. I'll do it. I'll send you a message and let you know how it fares.

    43gb :astonished:

    What else do you use for Virtual Surround? I find myself coming back to the GSX1000 every time.

    Thanks man, really appreciate it. Also I tend to forget how easy such a download is for me. o_o

    Yup. 43gb. PS4 is slower so 900+Mbps is not realistic but more like 50MB/s (400Mbps) and it takes about 14 minutes. Small coffee break :ksc75smile:

    My ps4 gets at best 35mbps. Even though everything else gets 70mbps.

    Within the first few minutes, I was getting little metallic artifacts every few minutes. Like a bzz for half a sec here and there.

    This is exactly the problem I have.

    So it's the game after all. What a shame as I really get gaming time only late at night in the many past weeks and thus don't want to fire up my 5.1.2 setup.
    Guess I'll have to find the time now.

    This game really has great sound.

    It does, the surround effect is perfect.

    But wait, I put in the OG Destiny and I'm getting the same artifacts.

    So I don't think it's the game. Maybe a setting? Try changing it to 5.1 on PC?

    Edit: I dunno man. That didn't help.

    Edit 2:

    So Itook the usb from my pc and directly to the ps4, after changing the speakers to 5.1 instead of 7.1. Destiny has no more sound glitches. I'll try TLOU again.

    Edit 3: Nvm, it's taking the studio from the usb not the optical. No wonder. Hold on

    So yeah... Looks like it may have something to do with the ps4's optical out because I'm getting it all the time with it. But since I normally have my ps4 sending audio to the hdmi instead and the TV optical out being what goes into the G6, I'm not getting the artifacts there, so far.

    So if you're using a TV, have that being what supplies the Dolby Digital signal to your G6, not the ps4.

    I only use it on the TV when using the speaker system.

    My AVR has 2 HDMI outs. One is for the TV, the other for my 27" Monitor. It's on the latter where I play (where also my PC is of course) when playing PS4 with headphones. Damnit.

    I had zero issues like that on other games. Have played them with the previous firmware however.
