My problem... Background noise/hum/static. No matter what level I set my speakers to this happens.
My Speakers... Two KRK Rokit 8's with One 10" KRK Subwoofer. 2.1 setup.
My Connection... KRK's connected to subwoofer as normal. RCA audio input going to Behringer UCA222 U-Control Ultra-Low Latency 2 In/2 Out USB Audio Interface. So basically this device is plugged into a USB slot, and outputs through audio cables which goes to my speakers. This method was recommended to me on this forum.
Other Thoughts... I've tried different audio cables, basic cheap ones, and monster cables. I know people hate monster cables with a passion, but they produce less background noise/hum/static then the cheap cables did, so I can't complain as it was much worse. Still as it is right now it's pretty bad.
What are better ways of hooking up these speakers? I primarily use them on my PC, and need help getting them to work without the static. The sound quality is still amazing, but the background noise on low-medium volumes is pretty loud and annoying.
I was once looking at getting a sound card, but the price is up there, at $200 the HT | OMEGA Claro Halo XT Sound card has RCA jacks...so it would be a straight RCA-RCA connection. I wouldn't mind buying this, but only if it would 100% fix my problem.
Any advice greatly appreciated. I just for once would like to use these amazing speakers I bought in crystal clear quality.
The rest of my pc specs are.... i52500k, Vista 64bit, GTX 570, 8 Gigs Ram, Biostar TP67B+.....
