    I understood somewhere I should connect the hub to a 2.4ghz network. My experience was at first - connected to my 5ghz network - terrible. My WIFI throughput went from 280mbs to 30mbs, I had massive cracking sounds and dropouts. My hub would be randomly inaccessible.

    I must say I have learnt a lot since those early days, I also connected the hub to a completely seperate 2.4ghz network. I cannot remember where, but I am sure a read a strong recommendation to keep the hub away from connecting to 5ghz. My own meshed het work of course supports both, but is is always the connecting device that determines what WIFI connection (2.4 or 5) to use.

    1) But do many people successfully connect to 5ghz? I read from your message you have done just that.
    2) And is channel 36 the one that interferes least with the WISA channels?

    If you are able to fix the 5Ghz wifi channel your router uses (instead of relying on any auto setting), that may help avoid issues and you may be able to move the router back to where it was. You need some knowledge to choose the channel though. You could start with channel 36 (or nearest if not available - the channel can be represented in multiple ways) and see where that takes you.

    I have ordered a 5m Ethernet cable to move my router further away, I will report back.

    There has been an issue with the speakers emitting a crackling noise when playing high-res files, but if you are sure it also happens with Spotify, then this is not the issue.

    It could also be interference from WiFi devices. Do you have your router, extender or something like that close to the hub?

    Just an idea but maybe you could swap the speakers (left to right and right to left) and see if the issue follows the speaker.

    I Have continued trouble shooting, also tried the MT beta that Made put on the Google drive. It seemed at first the cracking had gone, but alas…it is back again. Always the left channel.

    Crackling sound

    I hope someone can help me.

    I am in love with the sound of Buchardt, but alas I am having some issues trying to get everything to work (lots of WiFi issues).

    the issue:
    I am now down to one final hurdle: a crackling sound from my left speaker, the sound distortion seems to come from the tweeter. I have it happen a few times a day, mostly from playing lossless Apple Music, but also on Spotify.

    The setup:
    A509 with hub.
    I connect my hub to the 2.4 ghz WiFi from my cable modem. My generic hifi network is an Orbi meshed system - but in theory should not come into play. When I control the system I also connect my iPhone to the 2.4 ghz network.

    what have I tried?
    The A500s are just over a week old, I am using the MT stock tuning. I have tried different MTs.

    Any suggestions? I have read on the forum this is a known issue, not entirely sure if this was solved and how.
