Hi all.

I recently installed my Phoebus card into my Win7/64 system and everything works great - almost.

When I play an album or a playlist, I get an annoying very brief static blip or burst a few seconds before the end of the track. Sometimes there's also one a few seconds into the beginning of the next track, but that's not predictable.

It's not the actual music files, it's strictly something to do with the card/driver. When I would listen to the same music with the built in sound card, this didn't happen.

I'm using Windows Media Player version 12, so maybe I also need to find a better player as well (suggestions are welcome, but not iTunes!!!).

Would love to solve this - it's quite annoying!

1.This may be codec-related problem.
Try to install
and choose to install "Media player classic" while installation process.
Play it with this player.
Also you may try

2.Try different "Sample Rate" settings in Phoebus driver (in Speakers and Headphones sections accordingly).

I've tested this and have found no definite cause. In the past I solved it by adjusting seemingly unrelated network settings...at least I thought I did, but after long listening sessions I still sometimes have to restart Media Player to get rid of it. I've tried several other players (VLC, MPC-HC, Foobar2000). So far I've found it only happens in Media Player. I'm going to try Winamp soon to see if it works properly there too.

EDIT: Winamp works properly as well.
