iMovie Wierdness

My recent iMovie exports have been coming out "echo-ee"
I ripped my Beatles Anthology DVDs, converted to .MKV with MakeMKV, look and sound great.

Converted to MP4 with Handbrake, still look and sound good.

Took the MP4, imported to iMovie 10.1.0, and started hearing echoes.
Cropped to just Twist & Shout ( I like this better than the promo video from Beatles 1+ DVD/BD.

Export using File, Share, File... to Resolution= 720p, Quality= High, Compress= Better Quality

Any ideas?
Also, is there a way to import to iMovie without first re-compressing?

Not sure there's any way to avoid double-compressing in iMovie.

Try doubling the bitrate in the Handbrake options and when exporting from iMovie use the "export using QuickTime" option to save an MP4 matching the specs of the Handbrake-transcode.
