so these are the speakers i have
They sound great when im listening to music or playing games, but there is a really loud buzzing noise when im doing nothing with them and theyre just on. This is easily audible over my laptop and just barely louder than my pc
It doesn't seem to be a problem with the power source as my headphone amp doesn't seem to have this problem despite being plugged into the same power bar. I've also plugged the speaker into a wall plug in another room which doesn't have any running electronics and the buzz is still present even though there weren't any inputs either.
So, my question is, what can i do to try and fix this (i have a surge protector on the way since apparently those can help?)
If it really is something wrong with the amp that is included with the unit (see link)
then its probably out of the question for me to fix so my next question is, how would i go about finding a replacement?
AV receivers seem to be the only option but they seem to all be >300ish and if they're that expensive, i might as well get new speakers
So i have considered a kinda frankenstein solution and i seek the advice of you guys coz ive got no idea if its even feasible
so i buy one of these things
use the optical output from this
and then plug my speakers into the 5.1 output on the front
so my concern with this is, will such a cheap 'audio converter' degrade sound quality significantly and also, since it doesnt have an amp, will the amp on the xonar dgx be good enough to power the speakers?
