Yeah, I considered the binary as well... but it didn't make a difference. Got the exact same output.
Looking at this fine in a hex editor, I see some interesting stuff. The file starts with FF EE, then begins with the standard characters. Between every character is 00, which in the other window translates to just a square. It appears that these 00's are every other character in the file. I can't control how these files are written, but does knowing this tell someone what might be going on?
FF EE 58 00 30 00
?? ?? [ ?? 0 ??
So every other character from then on is expected and is what I see in the file. I just don't know the starting, or the 00 every other character.
