This has been an on and off issue for a while. All audio formats play perfectly except for AAC.

Anything encoded in AAC sounds like there is a tin sound on all channels. Voices are the worst. It is a high frequency squelch almost.

The strange thing us that it's not consistent. It'll be like that for a day and then it'll be fine. A few days later the problem will come back.

I haven't been able to affect the problem with restarts or other programs open in the background.

Any ideas? Thanks.
