    When get hiss, the external volume control on the speakers is too high and the Master Volume or Wave volume in the Windows volume control is too low.

    I have found ground loop isolators are usually used to quiet hums.

    Check your "Line Input" volume, maybe even try muting it.

    My sound card puts out a slight hiss when nothing is playing. If I mute it the hiss stops.
    Does anyone have any sugestions as to what may be the cause.
