Have you spent a fair amount of time with continuous sound playing? I installed these drivers on my Audigy 4, but it didn't help.

Windows 7 Beta 1 b7000

I was experiencing something like this, where after a long time, it would briefly cut into a weird distortion. I guess you could call it a crackle or fuzz. I fixed it by selecting SPDIF Out in my Sound Devices in Control Panel. Haven't heard anything wrong since.

For the Audigy4 see the following thread (may work with other cards). Changing the quality settings seemed to have fixed the issue for me and a few others . Let us know if it worked. Good luck.

The Daniel K drivers did the fix for me as well. Audigy 2 started doing it upon going to dual Core cpu. Did it on Vista too so it's not an OS issue. Anytime CPU got taxed a little, crackle would appear. Noticeable when my raid did anything too. I use Logitec 5.1 speakers and surround sound crackling is finally gone. Can finally listen to music again while gaming.

In your Bios make sure HDMI is Disengaged.
Made all the difference for me.

It's an average karaoke mic plugged into an adapter I guess I could say.. It's a little piece where...

7000 x64 Fixed my crackle :)
The analouge speaker crackle that has plagued me since 6801 appears to be rectified in the x64 version of build 7000 :party: The chipset inf and the audio drivers are the same as I 've used before. The only difference is using the x64 version. I can only assume that the drivers are more x64...
