Topic: RME Adi-2 DAC - Low level noises
I recently grabbed a new ADi-2 dac to "replace" my Adi-2 Pro (non fs version), since I didn't have any use for the A/D section and wanted to take advantage of the IEM output of the adi-2 dac.
However, to my surprise, I am getting a lot of low level noises and a constant pulsating sound like "tak tak" coming out of it.
I thought it could be a ground loop so I unplugged all the devices connected to the same grounded power strip and narrowed it down to the wifi router. If I unplug it, the noises are gone. If I plug it again, the noises start only when the router starts transmitting.
The funny thing is that with the Adi-2 Pro, plugged to the same computer and using the same cables in the exact same location, I was not getting any interferences. If I touch the ADi-2 dac with my hand, the noise seems to decrease.
I also tried a cheap (but very nice) dac/amp that I use with my PS4, again using the same cables, etc., and the headphone output is completely noise free...
So I am wondering if there might be some shielding issues with my unit.
Any input on this would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance
