You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I upgraded today from ubuntu 17.04 to ubuntu 17.10.

I use 3 different bluetooth audio devices ( BT earphones, BT speaker, BT
BOSE Soundlink speaker) , all of them worked properly on 17.04.

Since the upgrade, the sound gets continuous interruptions/cracking. 
These sound interruptions and cracking are so annoying that I cannot keep on listening to music.
I could relate this to the fact that a new BT stack has replaced the former in Ubuntu.

If I use wired devices (hdmi connected screen+audio, the sound quality is good and as before) so the issue is related to the use of the new Bluetooth stack.
I have not found a way to parameterise it neither.

I have not found any similar report. "apport" seems not ot exist in
thise version, I cannot find and execute it.
