View Full Version : AM radio interference when Squeezebox is on

When my wireless Squeezebox (original) is powered on and I am listening to AM radio anywhere else in the house, I get interference in the AM signal. This is something that has happened ever since I received the Squeezebox. The interference can be described as background noise and a blip about twice a second or so. It is very noticeable and makes listening to AM radio difficult. Anyone else experiencing this? (Unfortunately I don't have access to my Squeezebox2 right now so I can't test it with that)

This is a well known problem that, to my knowledge, has usually been
addressed by replacing the power adapter. I have found that using the
optical input instead of coax or RCA on the SB eliminates the AM
interference as well.

I am also having AM interference from the SB. I will try a new power adaptor, but switching to an optical cable from the SB to the preamp made no difference for me.
