do you have the volume on the source turned up high (i.e. volume control in windows), or the speakers themselves turned on high volume? usually cranking up the amplified source causes this kind of hissing. -Roach The hiss is there regardless of the volume of the source.

Speakers and speaker enhancements

I'm not really an audiophile when it comes to speakers, but I recently purchased speakers as an upgrade to my 10 year old altec lansings and I was wondering if speaker enhancements downgrade the quality of speakers. Enhancements such as SRS wow etc.... What I mean is should you use speakers without ...

PSU buzzing noise

My PSU started making a buzzing noise recently. You can hear it about 2 or 3 feet away from the tower.

I have a Cooler Master Silent pro 600w.
