    Hello Dick,

    From tests in our Bluesound Lab, we have been able to reproduce similar interference to what you mentioned while using a Bluetooth USB Adapter.

    This sound originates from something unique to certain USB Bluetooth Adapters when connected to our Bluesound players that we did not see when we first tested Bluesound‘s hardware compliance.

    This minor interference, noticeable with a Bluetooth USB connection is notable when using an RCA connection, but is not present over optical connections. It can be aggravated if the USB Bluetooth Adapter is not fully inserted into the player.

    Bluesound has taken steps to prevent this from being an issue in future builds of Bluesound players, but our primary focus for the future of Bluesound is to remove the need for this adapter by including your favorite streaming services to Bluesound with each major firmware and application update.

    If you have any concerns or questions, please get back to us for any further details.

    Hello Dick,

    Is anything connected to the USB port on the Back of your Node?

    Is this noise noticed using the Analog or Optical connection?

    Let us know any further details.

    Problem is "solved" by removing the bluetooth adapter.

    Hello Jesse,

    I'm experiencing a somewhat similar problem, though I would not describe the noise as a hum. I'm running a first-gen Node w/ RCA connection to a power amp and have tried the recommended IoGear dongle.  I'm curious to know, would a shielded USB cable to move the actual Bluetooth device away from the Node help?
