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.
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.
strange how it does it till windows is running to
