Need help with my setup (loud white noise)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,
Sorry for not properly introducing myself on the forums but I need some quick help..

I have a Sennheiser HD600 and a Fubar 3 Mk2 Preamp and I'm having white noise problems.
The white noise goes down when I turn the volume down and there's no saying when it's going to show up.
When I turn the preamp off the white noise is gone and it's perfectly fine for a while before the noise comes back and I have to turn it off again.
When I only connect my headphones there is no white noise so I'm pretty sure it's coming from my amp.

Can this be fixed or am I dealing with a broken preamp here?

It's hooked up through USB and I'm using high gain.

The one review for your DAC/AMP on Amazon says that it has tons of noise. I think you may have a detective unit.

Have you tried it with low gain? Does that make any difference?

It does make a difference when I keep my volume low, I guess I just need a better preamp.
Is there anything I can do to make the noise disappear?
