How to reduce noise with 8010A

Youngling Viestejä: 1 Liittymispäivä: 28.12.2017 Viimeisimmät viestit


I recently purchased a pair of 8010A's to use as rear surround sound speakers.  When I first got them I tested them out in a simple stereo setup and I have to say they sound amazing for their size!

Now, for my surround sound setup I am using an old Denon AVR1906 amp, with active speakers connected to the pre-outs (AVi ADM9's for the fronts and the Genelecs for the rears).  In this conifguration everything works great.  However, I wanted to make the connection between the amp and the Genelecs wireless so I purchased a wireless speaker kit from Monitor Audio (WT-1 and WR-1).  This is supposed to transmit lossless signal at 2.4GHz band, and it does the job fine except that it introduces a lot of audiable hiss/noise to the Genelecs, even when there is no source connected to the wireless transmitter.  I tried changing the input sensitivity dip switch on the Genelecs and that does reduce the noise but it is still very audiable from the listening position.  I get the feeling the issue is something to do with the input sensitivity of the Genelecs and the ouput 'strength' from the Monitor Audio wirless kit.  Can anyone offer any advice on how I might reduce the noise?  The Monitor Audio spec says the input impedence is > 20k Ohms but does not list anything for the output.  I realise I'm mixing consumer grade devices with pro audio gear here - is that where my issue lies?  Can anyone recommend an alternative piece of kit for enabling wireless audio?

Many thanks
