This is my set up Ipod 5g -> line out dock => acoustic research stereo mini to rca => Little Dot II => Grado SR-225's...the power cord is connected to an old radioshack surge protector/noise suppressor, and it is not this surge protector either I know because even before I moved the protector into my room the headphones have been doing the same thing..I keep hearing a crackling noise in the right ear that is very faint, almost distant it "cracks 1 sec silent, then crack crack crack..*over and over again only in the right ear. I have a laptop within I'd say 5 feet of the amp and the ipod, could this be causing my problem? I turn my cell phone off when I am near the computer and it still has the same problem, and I do not think any of my equipment is faulty because my speakers do the exact same thing when I plug them into the laptop sound card. Help!
