I will try again with all doors / windows closed. (I have a small flat )

You're correct it's 16 bits.

You can see it in settings -> system -> information.

You can only change it with rockbox, not with the sansa firmware. If changing the parameters change the frequency of the sound it could point to the problem / specific piece of hardware.

Ok I did the same,

Here are results with door closed:

With the Sansa firmware I can definitely hear the tick (though at a lowest volume than your recording).
With rockbox I don't hear it (I tried recording at 0dB and -20dB)

However I'm not sure rockbox records the same way than the Sansa firmware because the PCM doesn't look the same in audacity : the rockbox recording looks more flattened (perhaps reduced sampling depth) : screenshot attached.

neumannu47 if you don't know what rockbox is, check , Fuzev1 is supported by the installer.

If you want I can send you the recordings I made.
