Hello,
I received my Flex Eight approx one week ago, and I introduced it into my system last weekend.
I've got the Linkwitz LX521.4 speakers and Audiophonics ncore amps.
I can hear a low volume, high freq static/distorsion/noise coming from the left speaker.
It's clearly detectable even from the listening position.
I've had the 4*10 for many years previously, and not had any such issues before.
All I did was to replace the 4*10 with the Flex Eight, no other changes.
Anyone else having this issue with the Flex Eight?
Best Regards Stephan

You haven't posted nearly enough information to deduce anything.  What observations/troubleshooting have you done?

The buzz is in all four of the left outputs?
Did you perform a left/right swap?
Did you power on/off/on the Flex.
Did you reset the Flex configuration  to default and listen for noise?
?
?
?

I also have issue with my FLEX8 and made a post about it. Which Device Console version are you running? which firmware in the Flex8?

I've got the DC 1.0.0-Beta 5 and latest 1.54 firmware in the Flex 8.
Initial troubleshooting was that I powered off/on, no change.
I had the same filter setup in channel 1 and 3, and switching between them, no change.
I'm normally streaming from Tidal but also changed to Spotify (same songs), no change.
It does sound as if it's coming from the lower mid speaker, but I have to do further troubleshooting and listening.
Due to time constraints I've not had the time to do further troubleshooting.
I'll let it run for some days before starting to do further troubleshooting
