    [font=verdana, arial, helvetica]anyone know what might cause this? my computer speakers(cyber acoustics ca-3550) are whinging and humming and static...and when i turn the volume down on the speaker control it just starts humming louder. here's what i have on my desk...digital clock, lamp, wireless router, and my guitar amp...any of these might cause it? my roommate's speakers are just fine...so it must be something here and these speakers were fine when it was at home...cpu and temps down so nothing like that could mess with it[/font]

    i'de move the amp at least.

    I've noticed most of the time it's crappy wires that cause the humming. You could look into getting a better quality shielded cable and it should eliminate most of the "noise" you are getting.
