My Monster COAX cable is BUZZING.
I bought a monster COAX 1m cable for my DVD player (to replace my Optical cable).
It's giving a buzz sound out of my speakers (and the audio sounds like trash) compared to the optical cable I have. I'm sad because my receiver has only 2 optical inputs, and I have 3 optical equipment to hook up - and 2 of them MUST be optical, the DVD player can be coax - but it isn't really working. The DVD is buzzing now with the monster coax (all speakers buzz, even when nothing is being played), I switch back to optical and it's crystal clear audio. Obviously interference is occuring right?
Specifically I have XBOX and PS2, and bought optical cables for those, and bought a COAX cable for the DVD player - everything is monster. The PS2 and XBOX only have optical cables...nobody has made a coax for them. The DVD is suffering big time on COAX, lots of buzz - volume is slightly lower than optical. I need my DVD on optical. I just want answers on why this monster coax is buzzing. I moved the power cord from DVD player away from cable..no luck.
I removed the monster component cable and the buzz dissapears.
I have the Pioneer DV333.
Should I get a new DVD player, new receiver, or try an optical input switch?
I am definitely not keeping coax out for my dvd player now that I'm getting interference from the component input which is right by it...
