Noisy Sneaky DS
Hello,

I have a Sneaky DS connected directly to LK140's and Aktiv Katan speakers. I am happy with the sound overall, but I have recently noticed that when I change the volume via my Surface Pro or iPhone 5, there is a noise that is difficult to describe, but it is similar to the noise made by a dirty analogue pot, just a bit softer and not as "crackly".

This noise only seems to be in the left channel and can be heard when raising or lowering volume when music is playing, but is most obvious when adjusting volume when music is off/paused.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kind Regards,

Steve

Have you checked and cleaned all your cable connections? That’s often a good place to start.
