    Greetings to all, wonder if anyone had same problem which suddenly happened to my AA3.
    Sound has become harsh and fizzy, someone have described it good here on the forum saying it is sort of springy.It is not extreme,but definitely unplesant and basically not usable,especially distorted patches.Cleans though degraded,but not that bad.
    Happened all of a sudden.Trying to work it out, i have installed newest beta 4.1.2 firmware without any result in sound getting back to normal.Any ideas what can be done to fix the problem?

    cheers,

    Mario72

    I had the same issue after emailing Mr.King and trying all suggestions I ended up shipping it back to be repaired. The way I knew for sure it was wrong was playing through headphones

    I think my unit has developed a similar problem too, after a year of use. The output from the line out and xlr became fizzy and very unpleasant sounding. Only the headphone output sounds fine. So it's basically unusable for me.

    Did your problem ever get fixed?

    Thanks.

    I should add that the unit is only moderately used, never abused. I tried upgrading firmware, changing settings. Didn't help.

    It feels like a hardware issue as the headphone output sounds fine. It's ashamed as the unit has served me really well thus far...
