Hello everyone,
I just got my area 51 r2 today. I got it all set up and when i plugged my tritton ax pro headset into the computer via optical cable, the sound i get is filled with crackling. It sounds very distorted. I noticed that it clears a bit (not completely) when i don't plug it in all the way. Is this a common problem? What should I do?
