I have a TubeMagic DAC that connects to my computer via USB. I first noticed a popping sound coming from the DAC hardware box when the silent loading screens initiated in SpecOps: The Line.
I later noticed popping in the speakers during movie playback and during the first few notes of any song in Winamp.
Progression and location of events; works box is popping while plugged into real USB port > plug into externally AC powered USB hob and works fine. starts popping a month later. > plug into front usb ports and second hub, notice sound is louder and no pops.
Anyone have any clue as to the likely cause? Static in the motherboard? Underpowered/overpowered USB ports? Drivers?
