Handling Noise

Handling noise is noise that can be heard on the audio line with the source audio plugged in, but not producing and source audio. The noise is typically heard in terms of crackling, swishing, scratching, popping, buzzing or humming sounds. For buzzing or humming sounds please see the discussion about hums and buzzes. The other noises can be caused by sub-standard electrical termination at the connectors, worn or partially broken conductors, or inferior wiring in general. [1]
