What model are you having issues with?:
My PC (With RTX 3070 inside) via USB to Asgard 3 w/ AK DAC
Describe your issue with the most detail you can:
If I turn my Agard volume pot up to like 80% I can hear noise / hums that change frequency when I move my mouse or do anything on the computer. I guess my question is, do you think this noise comes through at listening levels which are around 30-40% volume?
So there’s a lot of noise inside my PC, there’s no doubt. My RAM cam hum sometimes, my CPU has a hum. And don’t even get me started about the constant coil whine in my RTX 3070.
My PC outputs via USB to an Asgard 3 via USB.
I purchased a Ifi Defender which removes the power portion of the USB, thinking I have a ground loop and this might fix it. Sadly it did not work.
So I’m thinking of upgrading anyways, my DAC and AMP. I’m wondering if going completely balanced will remove this too? If so that sort of throw a monkey wrench into my plan to get a Bifrost 2 and Valhalla 2.
