Can you hear a hum from your Mytek converter or Adam a7s??

I've recently upgraded my PC and it is now as silent as I can get it. The problem is I can now hear a hum coming from my Mytek Stereo 96 DAC.

I either never noticed it before or something has happened to the unit.

Interestingly I can also hear a hum from my Adam A7s, similar tone and volume. The hum isn't loud, you have to put your ear close to each unit to hear it properley but it can be heard enough from my mix position.

This hum can be heard constantly, when plugged into different outlets and with or without an input connected. It doesn't get louder when the volume is changed.

Any reasons for this or suggested fixes would be great as this is driving me nuts

I use Mytek Stereo 192DSD and Stereo96 DAs and have no issues. My room is very quiet. I would suspect the amp for the speakers first. also the cable feeds to the speakers.

Different speakers/converters, but I use a medical grade isolation transformer to solve a similar issue. My previous actives did not require it.

Why don't send it back? My Mytek 8x192 is dead silent.
