Setup- computer > audio interface > monitor speakers
I want my computer to sleep occasionally so my external displays, etc aren’t draining power or blasting light at me while not in use. But when it does, my monitor speakers start buzzing or even making random siren noises (seriously, it’s very startling!)
Is there some other device I can put in between the interface and the speakers that will help? An amplifier maybe? Or will turning off the amp just make the speakers buzz again?
Kill the power switch- This works but it still makes a loud pop noise in the speakers like they’re going to blow up. It also means my displays are going to take longer to power back on later than if they were just asleep.
Unplug the interface from my computer- The speakers immediately buzz
Turn off the speakers- Ideal sound-wise, but not at all easy. These are pro monitor speakers (Dynaudio) so they’re not user-friendly: they both need to be turned off individually with a switch in the back so I would have to get up and reach around behind my desk twice every time I took a break from using my computer. I can't emphasize how not-an-option this is.
