Sure, but I'm just saying he should go for if he can't solve the issue and it's driving him crazy.

Why would he get replacement if he's going to have the same problem with new speakers?

If his old speakers did not have this issue, how can you be so sure its the onboard sound causing it?

Well, all I'm saying is that if at any time in the future, for this problem or another, they are defective then don;t be afraid to get into the RMA process or even demand a new model; Logitech is accommodating. Best of luck on getting your issue ironed out.

1st, he didn't say he had old speakers and 2nd, they had no crackling on the iPod but did on the PC. Simple logic.

I would suggest trying this: Lower the sound output of your on-board sound card and using higher speaker volume. I had to do this to keep my Z-5500s from crackling.
I have my Auzentech card's output at 20% or less usually, anything above 40% or higher will cause my speakers and my headphones to crackle even at moderate volumes.

Well like I said, I have mine around 20% becasue that's what works for me, experiment a little and try (roughly if you don't get numbers next to your volume slider) 10%, 20% etc.

Ok it does help a bit but still the problem presists, so u say its clear i need to upgrade my sound card to get these speakers working at their full potential?

iv looked onto websites and how does this card look?

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/123088

is there any specifications to use it? do u need my computer specs?

and also how can it be installed? just the same as a graphcis card i take it?

thanks hope u can help

edit: is it possible i could of busted the speakers by turning them up to loud? if i turn it down they dont crackel at all so im guessing this does mean its my sound card? really not sure what to do here

Have you tried plugging the speakers/PC in different outlets yet?
