So I woke up this morning with my mesh router satellite busted. So while I wat for that to be replaced I changed my Star to run on WiFi. This is the first time I run my Star on WiFi since I purchased it.
However when I listen to it now I get a very very slight scratching noise (kinda sounds like an errant data signal) on the right channel which is only audible on headphones with low impedance.
So on my Mezze classics 99 and apple headphones I hear it. One both my sennheisers I don’t. I tried the Mezze’s with both cables and also on another source to make sure it is not the headphones.
I use the Mezze’s a lot so with my last listening session two days ago it was not there.
It is also not audible via the speakers.
It is volume independent and seems to get worse when I open the Naim app and connect to the streamer.
So can this sounds be caused by the WiFi circuits? Or was there some sort of power event that took out my router satellite and damaged my Star’s headphone amp?
