For the last few days at least I've been finding the audio in the PS3 app to be stuttery, for lack of any better word; the video is fine, but the audio keeps breaking up.

It is only affecting the Crunchyroll app (game audio is fine for example) so it is not the TV or my console.

Playback through a browser seems OK, in that until it did it's usual trick of freezing up completely the audio was fine.

In terms of shows, I have been catching up with Nagi no Asukara and trying out the new simulcasts like Wizard Barristers and Imocho.

Since the app update this is now much worse; the sound is distorting constantly, for all the world like I have a loose speaker connection and I'm jiggling the cable (obviously I don't and I'm not, and it doesn't affect anything else on my console)

I've not noticed any audio glitches, personally. So it could be an issue that only shows up on some setups more than others.

How do you connect your PS3 to your speakers?

HDMI to my TV's built-in speakers.
You're right - just tried red & white to my stereo and it's much better. Back to HDMI and it plays up again. My set (Sony 32W654A) says it is receiving Dolby Digital. I have no problems with games, Netflix, Animax, YouTube, BDs or DVDs.
I can make it go away disabling Dolby 5.1 output my PS3. My TV only has two speakers so shouldn't make much difference but...

Hmmmmmm.

I personally have no issues, but my PS3 is connected via HDMI to a 5.1 surround amp system.

I'm no digital audio expert, so i could easily be talking out of my arse, but it sounds like your TV is choking on the 5.1 audio and isn't able to handle it properly. Whether it's a common issue or something particular to the combination of CR, PS3, 5.1 and your particular AV setup is anyone's guess.

Does it happen on all shows? Or anything specific?
(I can try to test on my TV's own speakers during the week - they're usually muted so the amp handles all audio)
