    I've been using my Toshiba for 2 months now and I've noticed the following issue:

    When I record in L-PCM, the quality of the audio is really excellent! I was really impressed by the quality of it...
    But... when I record in Dolby compression, then it seems like that the audio contains some cracking when the audio reaches the peek level. It's almost not audible, but when you listen very carefully, it's remarkable. With music programs, the cracking isn't almost there, but when you listen to some spoken dialogs and the voices are speaking loud (sound level reaches), then you can hear the problem.

    Anybody else who has noticed this (small) problem?

    I was just wondering if this would be normal or not...

    I havn't noticed it on mine, but then maybe my ears(tv etc) arn't as good as yours.

    does this happen on both the dolby compressions?

    I would suggest not recording the audio all the way up to the peak level :)
    Not being smarmy - just see if it helps cure the problem....

    I use between 0.5 and 1 dBs of gain on the input of my XS32 - so my recordings end up at close to the same volume level as most commercially available recordings.
