Crackling/Popping Sound regardless of output method! USB-Soundcard.
Yeah but what sound issues did you have?
And btw i was testing out three different 3.5mm cables between 20 and 50 cm and there was no difference at all. I think everything under 1 meter will be ok...

@yuke Oh, i was having random crackling sounds and constant buzzing. After the new installation, the crackling was gone, but there still was a slight buzzing.
And I don't think that the length of the 3.5mm cable matters, mine is 3 meters. Although I'm only using some cheap in ear headphones so there still might be some noise but I'm happy now.

@yuke If your sound card is being powered by the pi it could well be a simple ground loop. You can get a 3.5mm jack ground loop eliminator which would solve that for a few quid on eBay. You’d need to try powering the sound card from a separate power supply and see if that confirms?
thats a good idea i guess and worth trying out

in case i decide to reinstall my pi2scart retropie image:
this is the way to go for usb backup (+ starting games from usb stick in the fture)?

ground loop eliminator
that saved me a couple of times now
ok funny thing i noticed while backupping my sd card to usb.
the sound problems got worse while the data was transfered to my usb stick. what does that mean?
Ok can please anyone just tell me if my Pi is just broken?
I found an hdmi splitter in the darkest corner of my room and did output the sound over its stereo jack (Its and HDMI -> Component/RCA/Stereo-Jack Splitter) and i still have the sound issues.
retropie image reinstallation helped. what can i do to prevent this from happening tho?
Well. Here i am again. Was playing the whole evening and the soundproblems have started again. Its like a degradation over time or something. I know it was perfectly fine after reinstalling the image, was testing it for quite some time out.
What can be the reason for such a weird problem? Like gimme anything you have. Far-fatched or not i dont mind.
