Are you using a sound-card, a receiver, or both?
What kind of connection are you using?...HDMI, coax, toslink, or component/analog?
What files are you playing (for music?)...compressed mp3's or high quality CD files?
I am using UCG102 Behringer ASIO interface. (USB Behringer Audio). I tried ASIO, I tried also ASIOFORALL. I get the same results with any of those selections. I tried to use (MME/Direct X). All the same (distorted audio). I don't have any problems playing Windows Media Player files, MP3's, etc. Thanks for your reply.

I have a VIA Ester Processor 1.5 Ghz and 2 Gigs o RAM. My CPU usage indicator displays 150% in Top right hand side of Live 8.5 when I play any part of a clip(I.E. Drums). My Windows Experience Index is 1.4 (due mainly to Crappy CPU rating of calculations per second). So, I may have a CPU that cannot handle Live 8.5. I play files in SONAR 7 with no problems whatsoever.

This is a very simple and common problem. 95% of the time, when this happens, it's your buffer size. Go to your preferences and increase your buffer size to it's maximum. Then re-test your audio. When buffer size is set too low, it increases the demands on the computer's CPU and it spikes, creating an audio output that sounds like it's going through a bit crusher or distortion module. Cheers!
