I just recently received my ZZ9000AX card - thank you.

I installed it and got mp3 audio working without issue. However, there is substantial distortion when the Paula audio cable is connected. In order to remove all interference, I need to disconnect the wire completely.

I tried routing the audio out of the RCA ports on the Amiga, and into the ‘AUX’ RCA ports on the AX card, but once again, there is substantial distortion.

Does this imply there is an issue with the AX card?

Any input would be appreciated.
