I have noticed that some sound effects for some games cut in and out. It's so minimal that it's not really much of a negative aspect for Wii game playback, but it is a thing nonetheless. It could also be my sound bar that causes it as well.

Yeah, possibly.

It might also be the sound settings for the Wii U, as well.

Could I trouble you try playing whatever game(s) have that issue using a different sound set up, or would that be annoying?

I'll have to try Skyward Sword.

Mario Kart Wii doesn't look much different to me, I played it in 1080p. Apparently. I can't remember properly though so don't take my word for it.

Honestly, the issue is so minimal that I don't think it's worth the hassle. But the next time I'm playing Wii games, I'll make a note of what games are doing it and try to run the audio through the tv speakers or something, lol.
