How to eliminate computer static?
    #1355240 - 03/06/03 04:37 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Recently I noticed that if I turn my stereo up (it's hooked up to the computer so I can play mp3s through it), and I have no mp3s playing, I can hear static coming through the speakers. Is there any way to eliminate that? At the moment it's connected by a standard audio cable that goes from the input (red and white sockets) to the computer speaker input.
I'm wondering if there is a way to eliminate it, because I'm not sure whether or not it really affects the quality of listening to mp3s at a normal volume. The reason I ask this is cause my hearing is shite (I'm deaf) and so if the sound quality of something is SLIGHTLY lower, I usually don't notice it, and other people will mention "Oh, your speakers are crackling etc"

currently, there is only one model of home sound card that offers static free sound (if you listen to any card, |edit| other then the one im trying to think of,|/edit| while nothing is playing youll hear a little big of white noise),
unfortunatly i forget which one, i belive it was a the audigy 2 though. you could always go for a much higher priced professional type card though, itll cost quite a bit more then the audigy 2.

Another thing to keep in mind, keep your audio cables away from your power cables, the same thing applys here as it does with anyother types of audio connections, wires, and cable runs.

Also, be sure to use high quality cables ment to carry audio signals some distance. EX: DONT use a long 3.5mm mini jack to 3.5mm mini jack to take it and split into RCA at your stereo. Use as small of an 3.5mm to RCA cable as possible, then run your long distance with the RCA cables, then if needed switch back over to the 3.5mm jack.

Hope this helps, PM me if you have any other questions.
