I have got an NUC DC3217BY When I use Linux, the sound is distorted, with Windows 7 there is no problem. The NUC is attached to an HP LP2475w with an HDMI cable, a DAC is attached to the coaxial digital sound output of the HP display, finally to the DAC a set of 2.0 speakers (Altec Lansing VS2720) is attached. With Windows 7 it always sounds perfect, but with Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS & 14.04 LTS, Chakra Fritz & Descartes) the sound usually distorted. If someone knows how can I solve this problem, let me know please. Thank you.
Hello PistaSzabo, I'm sorry for the inconvenience that you have faced on your system.
Intel does not test and validate Intel® NUC on Linux, however we know that a lot of NUC owners are using is successfully on many different Linux flavors.
Since you are not getting this behavior on Windows 7, I will suggest you checking your Linux distro’s website and forums for peer assistance with this issue.
