Hi guys, I’ve been reading through head fi for a while now for advice on headphone and speaker choices. Great community and knowledge source you guys have here. This is my first post, and it’s about a problem other posts on the net have covered but don’t seem to work in my case.
I got a pair of M-Audio AV40s connected to my Realtek ALC892 onboard sound (Asrock Z68 PRO) via a cheap but decent (I think) mini jack to RCA cable. On high volume and when there’s no music playing, I hear a high pitched chirping sound from the speakers when I move my Razer USB mouse around.
I’ve tried muting all the other inputs and outputs but this doesn’t work. Also tried plugging the mouse in a different port but same thing.
The PC is plugged into a 1000 watt AVR though I think both the PC and AVR have the normal two prong plugs
One thing that did work is plugging the speakers into my PC case’s headphone port. There’s no chirping noise but just a shhhh sound when the speakers volume is cranked up. I guess this is normal though?
This set up is actually alright but do I actually get worse quality from the headphone port on the case? I want to find a proper solution. Hope you guys could help.
Any pro tips on getting the most out of my AV40s would be awesome too!
