I just started using Crunchyroll on my Roku3600x, and the audio in every show I watch, new or old, is noticeably low quality. I've tried watching the exact same episodes on my desktop using my browser, and the audio is perfectly fine. The audio for other Roku apps such as FunimationNow and Netflix is also perfectly fine. It's literally only Crunchyroll that's giving me this problem.

Other than the audio, everything seems to be working fine.

Me too, the sound is swishy and over compressed when viewing on my Roku 3, but sounds great on the exact same episode on my laptop. What gives??

I've experienced the same thing, and it looks to be a Roku 3 issue. Playing any video for the first 30 seconds or so the sound will be very tinny/compressed/low-quality and then eventually start sounding normal. I tested this on two different Roku 3 models at two different houses - both of them using a stable ethernet connection, so it's not a network issue.

At the same two houses I tried alternate roku models - a Roku stick and a Roku Ultra. Both of those play the audio just fine, without the initial compression/distortion. So it looks like a problem with the Roku 3 specifically.
