I have a home-built PC music server that has been wonderful to listen to. Just recently I got new SATA cables and used 3m AB5030 EMI/RFI to shield the cables and some of the chips on the motherboard. When I start listening to music it sounds fantastic, but after 30-60 seconds it starts exhibiting major distortion and, get this, the music drops a half to full step in pitch. I've never experienced a change in pitch in the digital domain before. For background, I am using the following: Intel Celeron G1620 cpu with Integrated HD Graphics (so I don't have to use a video card) MSI B75MA-E33 (Military Class III with solid caps) LGA 1155 MicroATX motherboard Patriot Viper 3 DDR3 1600mhz 4gb (1 stick - I can add another if I need to) Seasonic S12II SS-330GB 330w ATX 80 PLUS Certified PSU Kingston SSDNow 200 64gb 2.5" SATAIII solid-state drive 2 Hitachi hard drives with a lot of music (and room for more of it) one 3tb and one 2tb. An Anker Astro E4 13000mAh Portable Battery pack to power the SSD drive ASUS Xonar DS PCI soundcard with upgraded opamps Microsoft Server 2012 None of the equipment other than the SATA cables has changed. _______________ What could be the cause of the increasing distortion and change of pitch? Peter BTW. I really appreciate all the good articles and advice I've gleaned from this website.
