Sample rate of the song? Do you have a same problem with all the songs or only one specific song? All tracks, even with out a track playing or USB attached getting this awful noise. When tracks play it’s like it’s bit crushed with digital distortion
This unit worked well before? Yes
Cable connection from your LP-16 to your receiver? This is not the issue
Do you have pre or post fader setup in your LP-16 menu? I don’t think so
The stereo content have no problem or you never tried?
Do you hear that noise on each channel or some specific channel?
Do you hear the noise in the headphones output as well?
Can you please try to set pre fader in your menu, the problem still preset with this setting as well?
