    I just got my new New Nexus 7 and love it! However the speakers seem to crackle a lot whenever audio is played. The audio sounds good but I still hear the crackle. This occurs throughout all of my apps. I'm not an expert on audio but I was wondering if anyone has this problem or explain if it is a normal thing?

    If my speakers crackled while streaming music I would be exchanging it for another device.

    I just looked at XDA and they said that it is common when the device is on a lower volume. There is some component that is used to eliminate the crackle but it would not be cheap to implement. Several people are reporting that is the issue and to not be too bothered with it. I will wait a few more days and make a decision. Any more cases of this or other input would be nice to hear!

    I noticed tinkling tonight that my nexus has this speaker cracks crackle issue. I only notice it at low volumes. It simple would be nice if there was a simple fix. I don't know if this is worth the hassle of exchanging It.

    There is no fix. According to the discussion at XDA, this is a consequence of the design of the audio circuit: digital volume control is used instead of analog.

    Oh, that's too bad. The crackle is definitely annoying when I want to listen to quiet audio. At least I mostly use a headset to listen to anything.
