card. You need more external amplification before the sound reaches the card. That's easier to do than replacing the card with a more professional design.
Ladies & Gentlemen, I am new to mp3 and ripping but not new to computers. As I listen to the Windows Media Player it (that is the computer) is producing a rather loud steady whining noise equal to the volume of the playback.
Part of the problem is the volume of the recordings I just did came through rather low and I have to crank up both the system volume and the speaker volume.
I just was experimenting with iTunes the other day and I did not have a noise problem there.
The speakers do not seem to be the problem. The sound card is a Creative Audigy LS which is good. All parts are fairly new.
The system is a local build.
Any ideas? Thanks.
