I have an issue. When I turn my setup "on" I can hear some background noise (static in my opinion).
- Flac songs
- USB from motherboard (Desktop computer placed on the floor close to a plug)
- Hi-Diamond USB2 cable
- Audio-gd NFB 3.33
- RCA interconnection cable (Audio-gd)
- LCD2, GS1000, DT880
So far I tried the amp alone and there is no noise, however as soon as I plug the RCA I can hear the static (with DAC "on" or "off"). Then I tried to plug the amp directly to the computer via a jack to RCA and the background appears to be worst. Therefore I think that the statics are coming from the computer but I am not sure. Could it be the quality of my plugs? I will try to use my other amp tonight (ALO PanAm) to see. Do you have any advices for me at this stage?
Thanks for your help!
I had exact same problem with MF M1DAC-A to WA6-SE I could not figure out where that noise was coming from and couldn't get rid of it even after switching 3 different power supplies and 2 different motherboards lol. I ended up using Optical out from my Motherboard and Asus DX instead of USB out which solved the problem. Also It was interesting that I did not have any noise when I connect my iPad 3 to M1DAC-A via USB.
