I recently bought Neumann KH120 Monitors, and first of all I must say they sound great
. BUT --- I have a Problem with weird clicking sounds that I hear coming from them (randomly, every 1/2,1,2,3 hours)?!?!
I think that it is due to voltage fluctuations in my flat, because I also had problems with the dbx 266xl (making weird noise-artifacts, etc.). What I dont understand is: why didn't I have this problem with my old my old monitors?
I had Tannoy Reveal 8D's, and they weren't connected to the ground (they didnt even have the option, tannoy claimed that it was better because that way you could avoid ground loops) -- could that make a difference? (I rather doubt it).
Another option could be that my audio interface is vulnerable to voltage fluctuations and therefore I hear clicks --- because if the monitors arent connected to the Interface, I dont have these clicks anymore. But then again -- why didnt I hear this on my old monitors??
also, saffire claims that: "The PRO 40 has its own internal power supply which will accept 90 - 250V from a standard IEC lead, meaning a transformer is NOT required to use the unit overseas." -- so voltage fluctuations should not be an issue IMO..
But I also doubt that it's the monitors fault...
The monitors are connected to a power distributor (where also the rest of my equipment is connected), which is directly connected to a power socket -- nothing else inbetween. Also there s no 2nd power distributor connected after the 1st one...
Any ideas on the cause of these click-sounds?? it's really annoying...
thx in advance
