RE: XPS 15 96560 Audio Crackling

If you are online, the system will try to replace the Windows driver, especially if the Dell Update is involved.

You may be running a higher performance system, but something such as a 4K display may also be involved.  Do you have the option to run your system on an external monitor and turn off the 4K on the laptop display?

Just trying to work through some possibilities to narrow the problem to one area.  If the Grove music does not exhibit the problem it may be a good place to start.  The ASIO utility has warnings about overdriving the sound system.  I don't seem to need my speakers turned higher than around 35% volume level...

One poster mentioned a Bios update had caused problems for his system and the 32 GBs of RAM.
