    I have a standard JVc stereo jack to phono cable coming out of the back of the mac mini 1.66ghz, 1GBram, into a Samson c-control monitor unit with balanced inputs.

    Does anyone else get similar problems? Got solutions?

    Thanks

    i wouldnt call them cheap no.. probably about 12 quids worth.. I think i have found the source of my problem by process of elimination, guess i just didnt think of it before hand!! dooh dooh.. I have an external soundcard-Mbox 2, and its not exactly the best grounded unit in the world ever-probably because its powered by USB and not AC..

    darrgh i hate hiss!!
