I recently bought the X-530 5.1 Surround sound speaker system and I've only had them for about a week now, but when I turn the volume all the way down to 0 on the right front speaker, it makes all of the speakers make this buzzing/humming sound but it goes away if you turn up the volume dial on the speaker, but it contiunes to do this even when the computer is turned off, i've check everything in my sound options on the computer and can't find anything and i've also plugged the bassbox into an actual wallsocket rather than in the extenstion cable
Would be greatly appreicated cause I really like these speakers! =)

I have a set of these speakers in my office. I do not leave them on all day, only when I am using them. The nature of amplifiers is to amplify. If there is no signal coming into them from a source such as a computer or MP3 player they will amplify the noise of the electrical circuit they are composed of.

I ready your reply to another post, and you seem pretty familiar with this system. I just bought it tonight, or last night, lol! I am curious how I should place the rear speakers?? They state to place them behind me, and there is nothing behind me but air. The wall behind me is a good 8 feet away. Also, any way to keep the wires from being "so" exposed"???
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

From what I have read, placement of the rear speakers should be around ear height and about equidistant from the fronts. The sub, for the LFE channel, does not have to be in front of you and mostly I have seen it placed to one side and close to a wall. For music, I don't think it matters either.
There is lots of good info on where to place speakers at wikipedia and at Dolby's web site.
I guess some kind of stand would be needed.
The wires (always an issue!), you could run them under the floor, or along the walls... i guess it would depend on your room environment.

I tryed turning off my external hard drives and the buzzing was gone!
all the mucking around i have been doing searching forums etc
anything with a spinning motor causes the interference.
just move your external hard drives away from pc or get a server in another room and connect to your externals through lan.
