Xonar DG static when using Analog Out: Headphone

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is happened before but it isn't going away this time. I think it's a grounding issue which is therefore causing noise. I can use the "2 speakers" analog fine but the sound quality isn't as nearly as good because you can't use "dolby headphone".

If you do not notice any audible problem with the "2 speakers" mode, then just use that. The boosted bass with the receiver can have a number of reasons, for example if you have a Sennheiser HD5xx series headphone, and the receiver has high output impedance, then that would explain it.









**EDIT**

Fixed this shiz. Changed the sample rate from 96khz to 44.1 and it went away! changed it back to 96.. and no static! WOOO!

Same problem. The noise is even louder for 44.1K than 48K/96K. Changing the amp settings has no effect. The background noise is only there when Analog Out is set to Headphone, otherwise it is completely silent.

A ghetto fix is to switch the Analog Out from Headphone to Speakers when you're not actively listening/gaming/whatever. This doesn't explain anything though (why is the noise only there when Headphone is selected?) and it's not a solution I want to stick with.

For future readers with this problem, I suggest placing the graphics card and sound card as far away as possible (unfortunately, today many motherboards have limited PCI slots located only directly next to the PCIEx16).

- Plugging in a good pair of headphones completely eliminates the noises altogether. I know the noise is still there, but it's inaudible so it doesn't matter. Using cheaper headphones, I found the hiss to be very slightly audible, but still much more faint than through my IEMs. This is a fine solution for me as IEMs are meant for portability and full-sized headphones for desktop use.

- I readjusted the backplate per chalkbluffgrown's recommendation; there was no difference for me. I was going to try plugging in the card without the backplate at all just to see if that was the cause of the hiss, but I have no problem simply not using my IEMs with my computer instead.

Thanks for the help, and hopefully my findings can be helpful to people in the future.
