Zoom h5 audio interface problem

Hey guys, I recently got a zoom h5 field recorder. It has amazing sound when recording guitar to the device.

But, when I use the audio interface mode I get fluctuations in the audio and it makes it sound very tinny.

I have tried it on my MacBook pro retina, my old 2008 MacBook Pro and on a ipad. Same problem.

Does anyone know what I can do so I can use my h5 as a audio interface and get quality sound through usb?

For those of you who care I sent the unit to Zoom suppliers. after a week of testing different units they say its not just my unit, there is a general defect in all ZOOM H5 units when using it as a audio interface. They offered to replace my ZOOM H5 with the ZOOM H6 at there expense. THANKS ZOOM and Marshall Music Cape town, great service.

So if you plan to do some studio recording to a DAW and need the portability of a field recorder, rather get the H6.

Would really like to hear how you find the sound quality out of the H6 when used as an audio interface then.
