    Sound problems on engine start / windows boot

    Hi Guys,

    I switched over to a USB soundblaster to get shut of all the interferance i had from the onboard, i must say it works a treat.

    However i get alternator noise and the hiss noise untill windows has booted and i guess loaded the drivers - as soon as it does there is a pop from the speakers as the sound card is initialised and then no noise just silence then upon playing radio or music just fantastic audio.

    is there anything i can do to get shut of this. all i can think to do is put a manual switch in for my amp and turn it on once windows has booted.

    Thanks

    Alternator noise: Seperate power and audio cables! Use good shielded audio cables!

    Hiss noise: I really don't think you can get rid of this, except with your mentioned switch... the only method I know to eliminate it in general, is to go by spdif to a good D/A converter.

    ah thanks dude, SPdif may be a good idea,

    the standard RCA's im using came free with the sound blaster, you know the type - rubbish black ones.
