Remote Audio Distortion

I've been trying to isolate an audio distortion problem when running SSDR in remote mode on a tablet PC.  It also shows up using Maestro and K6TU's iPad app. 

For Maestro users especially, perhaps you can help confirm the distortion by trying the test below.  Please listen with stereo headphones: 

1) In SSB mode, find a reasonably strong QSO on Slice A.  Let's say it's 14.200.000 as an example.

2) Now, activate Slice B and set B to the same freq. as Slice A (e.g., pressing A>B button). Both Slice A and B should read 14.200.000

3) Next, move Slice B up 100 Hz (in this example to 14.200.100). Do you hear severe distortion? 

4) Move Slice B back 100 Hz to 14.200.000, does the distortion disappear?

I've noticed the audio distortion does not appear at my Flex 6700 headphone jack.  It is only present when using remote audio mode.  Yes, hardware and software has been re-set.

*** This test is NOT for users listening at the Flex transceiver's headphone jack ***
