Long-time lurker, first-time poster. Any audio coming out of iTunes sounds heavily distorted and metallic-like. Almost as if megatron jumped into my speakers and started repeating everything in an ultra-metallic voice. This happens with music, podcasts and iTunes radio. However, this does not happen when I run audio from other programs/locations on my PC (running XP, btw). Therefore, the problem is not with drivers or speakers or audio files themselves. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling iTunes and that does not seem to change a thing. Short of reverting back to a previous version of itunes and hoping that solves the problem, does anyone have any ideas as to what might be wrong and tips on how to fix it? Thanks so much.
