hoping to create a grounded shield. Am I totally in the wrong here ?
I have a PC chassis where the little front output for headphones are connected to the motherboard by a unshielded cables and it seems to pickup some annoying noise on it. i am considering to do an DIY solutions- unmount the cable and wrap it in household alu foil- connect a small wire from the alu foil to the chassishoping to create a grounded shield. Am I totally in the wrong here ?
I have the same problem, my solution was a long cable to the rear jack. But I've read somewhere could be the way the Audio Ground is shared (or not shared) with the Chassis Ground.In the end, This would require modifying a small PCB in the front of the chassis. And I couldn't confirm the "Correct" way it should be (Industry-Wise). Also what would be the PROs and CONs of making the change. So I went with the minimal impact option.LINK 1:https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/article-fix-front-panel-audio-emi-noise.187276/LINK 2:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FWu_MrRQ28
