FIXATION Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

My new mac mini (2011 i5 2 months old)  Makes intermittent audio buzzing out the analog jack, if I play a sound source or move the volume slider it goes away temporarily and then comes back, as soon as I play a sound source it goes away.  If sound output stops for more than a minute or two it starts again.  I am using a power conditioner and an audio cable that has transformers that elimoiate ground loop hum.  This is clearly an intermittent thing....  This makes it useless as a media player which is what I purchased it for.  Its now very noisy in my otherwise peaceful living room, and the only way to fix it is to get this thing working correctly.,

    HI, what else do you have plugged into it, it sure sounds likea ground loop somewhere!?

    Have you tried another cable?  Also, are you sure it is plugged in

    all the way?   Mine is pretty stiff and requires a suprisingly

    signifigant amount of force for it to be fully seated.   There is

    a point where it seems like it is connectected, but requires

    an additional push to fully seat it.
