I am a happy owner of a Sprout100, paired with the Q Acoustics 3020i speakers.
Both the amp and the speakers are brand new and I’m using them since only 4 days.
At certain frequencies, I’m hearing a strange noise that I would make listen to you.
At this link you can download a small audio file: https://we.tl/t-8wfjDx4Tbc
The link expires in a week, but I can re-upload the file in case of need.
Is a horrible recording from my smartphone, sorry.
At about the second 00:06, I hope you can hear that noise too. It sounds “metallic” or like an excessive vibration of the membrane.
I don’t have trained ears and I’m not an audiophile, so I don’t know if it is a “distortion” or something else.
I only know that I hear it and it comes from my brand new hi-fi system
- That song was playing from Spotify through the Bluetooth (I don’t own other sources available at the moment)
- I used banana plugs to connect the cables to the speakers
- The recording comes from the right speaker
- I tried switching the speakers and the cables, but the noise persist
Thank you very much!
