Hey guys. Just signed up because it seems you lot know your stuff with computer audio.
I have a desktop PC i have added some Rokit5's too. I am getting some really strange issues. I first tried to run then from a phono to RCA cable. They worked great on my iphone but the PC had horrible ground loop type hum. I took PC apart and re routed and screwed everything back tight. It was still there and its def coming from the PSU side but no other speakers have ever done this on my system.
I then tried a power conditioner and no help. then a Behringer UCA202 which didn't help either. as soon as the USB even touched the PC case i got the ground issue. I tried cables with no ground pin also.
I also noticed i get noises when ever i open a program or switch windows and scroll also.
I then tried a OREI DA9 Digital to Analog Audio Converter - 192kHz/24bit Optical and Coaxial DAC which took away 99% of the issues but now i am having issues with a static noise every 30 seconds and a very slight power hum. i guess the power supply for the DAC could be causing this issue as it stops when i unplug that from the unit.
Getting to the point I'm ready to just get rid of these speakers. they sure are fussy on the equipment they like to be used with.
Do you guys have any tips on getting this to run correctly?
