Thread: Soundcard&speakers

  1. #1
    When listening to music on k/lite on my headphones,whether i've got them connected to the speakers or directly to the onboard sound i'm getting a terrible hissing noise,so i had a old soundcard that i had fitted(soundblaster pc 164) when i connect the headphones directly to the soundcard the hissing has gone but is still there when connected to the speakers,but the sound quality seems to be better when connected to the speakers if i didnt have that annoying hissing noise.Does any body know how to get rid of it.

    Try a better ground off the speaker lead or soundcard, or an inline noise filter. You may have to install a dedicated ground to the computer case that's independent of the house wiring.

    Or you could go into Volume control, turn everything up to max, AND TURN YOUR AMP DOWN!!

    also try the same thing with CD volume. since windows does it via the IDE cable in most cases u dont need this to be connected or turned on
