    I just bought a pair of Logitech Z130 computer speakers today, and there is a buzzing noise. As I turn the volume up, the buzzing gets louder. What could be causing this ? Any troubleshooting advice ?

    Thanks.

    As I move the wires around the buzzing stops. There are so many cables I don't know what could be causing this. We have our computer tower, monitor, printer, the 2 speakers, modem/router combo.

    What would be the most likely cause?

    Thanks.

    It may be one of the devices nearby is emitting some signal noise which the speaker wires are picking up. I once had a pair computer speakers that would buzz when anyone within a certain range was about to receive a phone call.

    Could also be that the circuit isn’t fully grounded.

    Thanks. It's weird that I never had this problem with the old speakers.

    Yeah, I dunno. Could just be a defective bit of wiring too. I’d probably try to exchange if it were me.

    Sounds like either interference (cables are acting as antennae as Josh. Opted) or a connector is bad.
