Scarlett 2i2 Ground Loop Noise

Hello Guys,

I have been using Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface, and when I turn on 48V there is this annoying noise which I believe is a Ground Loop. When I unplug the power cable from the laptop the noise goes away. And when I connect it to an iMac also the problem is there.

I have contacted Focusrite about this issue and they suggested various remedies which haven't worked and all my friends who have been using this Audio Interface have had the same issue.

FYI I have tested this with several power sockets in several houses, and specially I had this issue when I was in Sri Lanka, and now I live in the UK and the problem is still there.

Any of you guys had the same issue?

Any suggestions?
