I’ve asked about this problem before but was told that active systems are a bit more susceptible to static/RFI crackle/pop.
Basically every so often (20-30 minutes) I get a static/RFI crackle/pop through my speakers which just lasts a second or less (literally just a single pop) and this happens whether the music is playing or not and even happens when no music is playing and the volume is at zero.
Just wondering if anybody else out there with a Naim active system also experiences this and if it’s normal?
My system is:
Supercap 2 > Nac 52 > Olive Supercap > Snaxo 2-4 > 4x 135’s
I’m currently using one 5 metre pair of Nac A5 on the mid drivers and one 5.5 metre pair of Witch Hat Phantom on the tweeters of my SL2’s.
But I don’t think the speaker cable miss match or slight cable length mismatch has anything to do with this.
I have had static (very faint) generally when powered down and it goes after a few days and never intrudes. Active systems have lots of wires and in my system I have found that separation and free hanging of everything helps (it takes time and effort) but gives stable and consistent results.
