Good book, bad audio

This is the worst quality of the Wheel of Time audio books I have encountered. The narrators are understandable, but significantly less audio quality than previous book. This was done by McMillan Publishers and cheaply. Audio Renaissance was much better. Now I understand the message in the beginning of the previous book about using the same narrators for continuity. Notable drop in quality from that book. The parts have 90 chapters about 6-7 minutes long. There is an audible and annoying pause between them. you can also hear what must be the spacing between CDs as words are repeated.

Why isn't this fixed yet?

I am surprised that there are complaints about the recording / editing of this book going back to May of 2011 yet Audible has not fixed the problem.

I am plowing my way through this wonderful series of books by the late Robert Jordan. I got hooked in the first book and cannot stop. According to Wikipedia, there are 419 hours and 30 minutes of performance by Kate Reading and Micheal Kramer with one more book yet to come.

My reason however for posting this review is because the recording was simply done incorrectly. Many times throughout the performance, you will have to listen to repeated sentences.. Extremely annoying and something that should be easily fixed.

So why hasn't Audible remeded this problem or at least provided a warning to their customers that this version has material defects?
