Crackling noise with unitiserve ssd

Hi all, I am just starting to use a unitiserve ssd. I have it hooked to Ethernet with a net gear power line 1200 extender. Unfortunately it is causing a lot of a/c noise over my speakers. It doesn’t even need to be hooked via the digital cable to my dac and the noise is there. Nor does it change with the volume knob. It stops as soon as I unplug the Ethernet cable.

I have a nap 250, naim dac, Nac 102 and teddy pardo external power sources for the dac and preamp.

Does anyone have any idea how to make the noise stop?

Does the noise go when you switch off the Netgear1200 ?

A agree that the powerline adapter is the prime suspect here. Try connecting the Unitiserve to your router with an Ethernet cable and see it the noise disappears.

Yes. I think I have to run a direct wire to my router. Thanks for responding!
