Kali Audio LP-6 hiss noise

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys. So i bought a pair of my first stuido monitors. Plugged them in with balanced XLR to Jack cables. Played some music through them and then when i stopped playback and sat in silence i heard hiss noise. It's not extremely loud but quite audible and annoying. I tried different network filters from cheap ones to expensive ones. I tried an expensive power conditioner didn't work as well. I went to my friends house, plugged them and it was still there. I have an option to send them on an expertise to find out if they're alright. But i'm wondering is this kind of a thing normal or i have bad monitors?

Most monitors that aren't flagship models will have some hiss.

 

We call it "idle noise" alot if we're talking about a powered speaker/studio monitor.

 

Most of my monitors hiss slightly, except my Genelec 8351APM's and Adam Audio S5H's. None of my passive speakers hiss. All plugged into IsoTek EVO3 Super Titan power conditioners.


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

 

Spent over 700k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

Why 44.1kHz is all you need: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyquist–Shannon_sampling_theorem
