I'm experiencing an audio problem when I connect my 2012 MacBook Air to my 27" Thunderbolt Display. When playing audio of any form (e.g., iTunes, Skype, streaming music via Chrome), the audio starts out sounding fine. After about 1 minute and 40 seconds, you start to hear static mixed in with the audio.  After about 3 minutes, the audio is completely overcome with static; the original audio is totally indecipherbable.

 

I only experience this problem when playing audio through the Thunderbolt Display's speakers using my 2012 MacBook Air.

 

The problem does not occur when playing audio through the 2012 MacBook Air's speakers.

 

The problem does not occur when playing audio through the Thunderbolt display with a previous-generation (mid-2011) MacBook Air.

 

I have installed all currently-available software updates.

 

Is anyone aware of a solution to this issue?  Any help you can offer is much appreciated.
