Question I am getting static and crackling on all audio devices

Feb 1, 2023
I am having this issue where no matter what I am playing or where (from any dac, amp, port (tried line out, 3.5mm, optical, USB) I am having this distortion. I have tried everything to fix it (roll back audio drivers, mobo bios etc) and nothing works. The only exception is Bluetooth which has no issue. I don't see how this could be happening especially with optical because it is only getting light from the PC. All of the audio is plugged into a different powerstrip, but the same outlet.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Can you please add the make and model of your PSU and it's age? BIOS version for your motherboard would a good piece of info to add. Have you tried working with another wall outlet? Also, have you verified that the wall outlet is grounded?
