I’m a newbie. I have the NUC8i7BEH , connected over Ethernet , with a Bluesound Node2i connected via analog to my Marantz 7705.
I noticed the same popping and buzzing yesterday through my speakers when the Marantz was muted.
Through trial and error , I realized it was the HDMi connection I had from the NUC to the Marantz I was using it to display nuc on screen for configuration
Changes. Since removing that HDMI connection.
The HDMI cable is a premium high speed cable so is the HDMI bus that noisy on the nuc ?
Can you confirm if this same behavior occurs with a different HDMI cable?
Yes, I have tried 2 different cable types
- all are High Speed HDMI - new from blue jeans -
and I just tried an old monster HDMI cable I had hanging around…same behaviour…
pops and buzzing when muted
It sounds like there might be some kind of ground loop going on in the setup. Is your NUC and Marantz connected to the same power strip/outlet? What if you try plugging either the NUC or Marantz into another outlet with an extension cable, does the buzz still occur?
Thanks, I tried that …same result
this is fine, this is NOT a Roon issue…and not the end of the world…
to me it appears to be noise from the inside of the NUC getting to the HDMI signal…the audio part anyways
I will manage, as I only need to connect this particular HMDI connection when I want to display the NUC on my Projector to change settings, etc…
