Crackling and popping sound with DTS-MA audio track

Title basically says it all, often happens during the quiet part of the movie with a DTS-MA audio track.

Maybe some details on what version numbers of everything and on what you’re playing this along with what kind of connections IE WiFi, Ethernet, etc, what band, all movies or only a few, what kind of AV receiver, how it’s connected, etc.

With what you’ve provided so far I’d guess something causing RF interference with your receiver.

I thought about the possibility of RF interference but then I have the optical out hooked up from TV to the powered speakers directly, swapped the cables around with no luck either…

Could the audio file itself or even your speakers or the amplifier.
