    Hello wBoop,

    Does this buzzing you're experiencing change when you adjust the volume on the Powernode 2i? For example, does the buzzing get quieter when reducing the volume output of your Powernode 2i?

    If the buzzing changes with the Powernode's volume, this may be due to your Dali speakers being sensitive at high volumes. However, if the buzzing does not change with the volume, the first thing I would suggest is to try a different set of speaker cables to see if this resolves the issue. 

    If replacing the cables still exhibits the same behavior, then please contact our support team directly at support@bluesound.com so we can investigate this further for you.

    Regards,

    I opened up Roon. I paused a song and set the volume at 0% and 100% - The "hiss" was the same. 

     

    I just got the system. Both the Powernode 2i and the Dali Oberon's are brand new. They are connected with brand new cables: Argon Audio Classic 2 w. Banana plugs.

    It is not audible when the music is playing. This tiny hiss with a slight tone, isnt it just supposed to be there when you put your ear right next to the tweeter/driver? I mean. Will any speaker driver be dead silent when nothing is being played while still being active and connected to the amplifier?

    Hello wBoop,

    Some higher-end speakers may be more sensitive and result in a low hum or buzz when playback is paused. If you are only noticing this noise when your ear is right next to it and not from your standard listening position, then this buzzing should not be a concern. 

    However, if you notice this buzzing get any worse or occur during audio playback, please contact our support crew directly so we can investigate the issue further for you.
