I made a post a about 3 weeks ago regarding my brand new MBP's speaker pop. Whenever it's about to make a sound, the sound card will wake up, you'll get a POP from the speakers, then the noise you're looking for. Also, when external speakers are installed, you can hear some BEEPING, SCREECHING and other noises occassionally. On the Apple Support Discussion Page, it Appears to be a major problem. Here, people are only concerned with the yellow screen. So I wonder, do any of you have the speaker issues? It was non-existant in my Powerbook G4, but I got up close and personal with some Macbook Pros at the Apple store last night, and I could notice the delay in sound (As the sound card powered up) but it was too loud to notice if it was popping. Anybody have a solution? Or is this baby really going to have to go back to apple???
