Both my host and guest are Windows 7 Professional. If I use the HD Audio driver for the guest, the audio lags behind the video a few frames for any streaming video such as news or YouTube. Also, there is distortion, popping, crackling, skipping, etc. of the audio. After switching to AC97 ICH in the guest, the LAGGING problem goes away. However, the distortion persists.
I followed the steps for Audio Debugging in the Wiki. The WAV file also exhibits some distortion when played on the host, though perhaps not quite as noticeable as the distortion in the guest. I am attaching the VBox.log file.
Finally, it may be worth noting that NONE of these issues existed for me when I was using VBox version 5.0.26. Every version of 5.1 I have tried as well as the newest 5.2 has this problem.
