    So I'm hearing this excess noise from the monitors, it very clearly mimics the sound of the CPU working, or the hard drive or whatever that noise is you hear when your computer is working pretty hard, and it goes away when the computer is off. I have a Tascam US-144 mkII, with 3 ft RCA cables going to the monitors, KRK Rokit 6's. Now, I have the headphones connected to the Tascam too and they don't give s single bit of noise. I have the power to the monitors on the same surge protector as the CPU and the video monitor, which may be the problem, or it could be the fault of the Tascam unit, or I guess it could also be the unbalanced cables (although at 3 feet it shouldn't matter right?), any help?

    I think it could be the cables, replace the RCA with TRS cables.

    I would if I could, the Tascam us-144 doesn't have balanced audio out.

    I had the exact same issue with a pair of Yamaha HSM50's using the RCA outputs on my fast track pro but once I changed to TRS the problem was resolved

    I have a tascam us122 and just recently started getting noise when something was connected to the headphone jack. Strange I know. Try unplugging your headphones and see if the noise goes away.

    You might also try a different set of cables if you have access to some or try unplugging one cable at a time and see if the noise stops. One more thing is to make sure the wires aren't crossed with other wires and if they do have to cross other wires they should cross in a + pattern, not parallel.

    RCA cables are real prone to outside interference so its good you have them fairly short, but try and avoid them laying on any other electrical equipment too. Good Luck!

    Whoa, good suggestion, there are headphones attached, but that didn't work. I'm not familiar with the concept of crossing cables, and what a positive orientation looks like. It's obv some kind of interference, because it mimics the sound of the computer, it's near an LCD monitor, but moving it away doesn't work.

    I saw your studio pics and it doesn't look like the cables are crossed. I would try and get a different set of cables to start with.
