I can’t use HDMI audio for the project I have on at the moment, but the sound I’m getting from other methods is terrible.
I’ve tried both the 3.5mm jack and a USB adapter and both are very noisy / crackly. I’ve done a search on here and tried all the methods I could find; dither settings etc. but none have worked. I’m sending the audio from the pi into a small amp (the amp works perfectly crackle-free when connected to my phone).
I’m wondering if anyone else here has had bad sound output, and how they fixed it.
Yes that’s the one I tried, but unfortunately nothing helped.
Strange that the same noise is present when using a USB adapter too though, isn’t it?
The only workaround that I can think of at the moment is to use an LCD driver board that handles audio as well as video, but that’s an expense I really wanted to avoid. Ideally I wanted to run sound pi>amp>speaker.
