Crackly radio stream

not sure if this is the right section to be posting this, but i'm helping a not for profit run a streaming server using shoutcast and darkice

the config for darkice is as follows
       duration        = 0
       bufferSecs      = 5

       device          = default
       sampleRate      = 22050
       bitsPerSample   = 16
       channel         = 2

       bitrateMode     = cbr
       format          = mp3
       bitrate         = 128
       quality         = 0.8
       server          =
       port            = 34579
       password        = ****
       name            = Harvard Community Radio
       url             =
       genre           = Community Radio
       public          = yes
       #irc             =
       #aim             = aim here
       #icq             = I see you too
if you browse to the 'url' listed in the code, and click 'listen live' (or click the playlist link), you can listen to the stream

any suggestions on what could be causing the crackling noise would be helpful
will provide any additional information necessary upon request

By the sounds of it, that static is from the linear sections of the server. Check the cabling between the audio capture devices and their sources. I've yet to hear that type of static from a pure digital source!
(digital problems usually manifest as 'chopping' which causes a different type of 'crackle')

On a side note, I kinda like the crackling, it reminds me of playing a dusty old vinyl!
