Hi! I'm a happy new owner of a pair of Sixes. Love the sound and the style but I'm a bit disappointed by a constant noise remaining, no matter the source is used. This white noise is easy to ear with no music playing or with music played at low volume (I use speaker on my working desk, so I'm around 1m far from speakers) Of course, it's covered by music when played at mid/high volume. Here are the symptoms : White noise constantly present no matter the source (BT, Aux, USB, Phono, Digital) no matter if something is connected to the source or not Same noise volume, no matter the setting of the volume button. --> This make me say that speaker creates the noise by themselves, not by the source. What I tried : Remove all other devices plugged on electric outlet (from all electric outlet of the same circuit breaker) Try to plug speakers on an other eletric outlet network Use a power supply cord with and without ground Do you think this is normal or it might be a defect? My local reseller say it's normal for active speakers to have this kind of noise but my 20 years old entry range student stereo player do not have any noise... (But it's not active speaker tho...) I'm really happy with those sixes when I ear them loud, but disappointed when I ear them slow while I'm working... Additional question to Sixes owners : When you turn source button in clockwise direction, how is the led moving? Mine is going top to down which I don't find logical. Clockwise : Digital --> Phono --> USB --> Aux --> BT --> block on BT Counterclockwise : BT --> Aux --> USB --> Phono --> Digital --> block on digital. Perhaps I have a bad wiring of my speakers which could cause this noise? Thanks in advance for your help! Sylvain edit: seems I didn't post in the correct section sorry about that!
Looking for a speaker upgrade for listening to high quality lossless music. (FLAC, AAC) I currently own the Audioengine A5+ and they are working fine however I am looking for an upgrade. My room is a medium sized room with 20ft on each side! (estimated) Which from the following two speakers have better specs and which one should I go for? I read the Klipsch sixes has a inbuilt DAC so does that mean I won't need a DAC for high quality audio or I can still use a DAC with the speakers and get better SQ by combining both. Currently planning to buy the Topping D50 DAC. Apologies if the questions are silly, I'm fairly new to this. Thank you all for the help in advance! ☺️ The DAC I am planning to buy: http://www.tpdz.net/products_detail/productId=41.html
Hi all, Can anyone please tell me the best option to choose for playing FLAC files on "The Sixes"? Which bitrate and sampling rate should I use when my "The Sixes" is connected to my laptop (with no separate soundcard, just core i3-8gen) via USB AUDIO (SPDIF interface)? Thanks all
Hi everyone, I am about to buy Klipsch the Sixes and was wondering if I could connect an equalizer to it. The connection would be from tv to equalizer to the speakers. Is that a possibility? The idea is to sculpt the frequencies a bit, especially the low end when watching movies. Thanks a bunch for any help.
