Intermittent Static on speakers

Tell him to move the audio cable away from any transformers (the PC's PSU is a big interference magnet) and power cables, also try buy a ground loop isolator

A colleague of mine has been experiencing intermittent staticky sounds on his computer system while watching YouTube - he doesn’t game on it. It is a prefab HP gaming system with An I7 7700 and A GTX 1070. He has Bose companion 2 III speakers and he’s tried them on his laptop and they have worked fine there for over a week now.  He has indicated that there’s no pattern to the staticky sounds, they kind of just come and go.  His PC is on a floor stand and there is a power bar behind it.

Any ideas at what might be causing this?

 

 Thanks for any ideas!

is the audio cable close to the power bar or power cable? That can cause some interference

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or speaker gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Yes my audio stuff is 800,000 USD, I'm a dedicated audiophile/mastering engineer

 

(If you want to see my audio stuff, check my profile, it's too much to list here.)
