I've recently purchased a pair of Eris 4.5 monitors to listen to music from my desktop. It's connected to the the sound card in the desktop via the supplied aux jack that goes into the unbalance rca inputs at the back of the speaker. It's working well but for a simple problem:
To save the power button in front of the monitor I've tried switching off the monitors from an external switch on my power strip. However, whenever I do that there is a popping noise that is emited from the speaker. I've tried various things including switching off the computer before the speakers, decreasing the volume to 0 from the front of the speakers before turning it off etc but I the speakers still emit the pop sound. There is no such problem when I use the power button on the speaker.
However, I suspect that the power button will fail sooner or later so I do want turn off the monitors with an external switch. Is there any way to do it without the popping noise and without having to invest in a power conditioner? Thanks.
