    Default Anyone know anything about Hi-fi?

    Got a bit of prob with my PC sound card (Creative Live! 24bit). Its plugged into my Rotel pre and Power amp combo and outputted via a pair of Mission floor standers. I took the mesh of the speakers and I've noticed that when the amp are set to the PC input and you turn the volume button the left speakerís bass cone flexes like mad Ė even if there is no sound from the PC. If you unplug and switch to the motherboards on board sound its fine. Iíve tried a new cable from the PC to amp and Iíve updated the sound card divers, Iíve also checked the settings in control panel and it is set to two channel audio and tried using different inputs on the amp and nothing helps.

    Very confused and a bit worried. Anyone any ideas?

    Cheers!!!

    Sounds like it may be a bad earth/ground loop Si. The earth on your Rotel may be at a different point to the one on the PC. You can usually fix it with a ground loop isolator - Maplin sell them for £9
