Thread: Echo from Soundcard
10-06-2008, 01:18 PM #1Echo from Soundcard
Ok, so my fiancé's Mac Mini has suddenly gotten a weird echo from the soundcard (not just an echo, but it also sounds like the tracks are muffled). I have deduced that it is not the cable (used 3 different cables, including one with a ground-loop isolator), it is not the Onkyo receiver or the specific jack she is plugging into (as I plugged her into my MBP jack and it still happened), it is not the tracks (as they play fine on both her iPod, and when I connect to her iTunes library from my MBP) and it still happens when she is using headphones.
I am HOPING that it isn't the soundcard itself, even though she is within warranty, she uses her computer everyday for school and that would be a gigantic hassle. SO, any other ideas????masakatsu agatsu

You've just about eliminated everything but the sound card itself. It's a good bet that the sound card is defective. Have her take it on in to Apple since it's still under warranty. They may be able to repair it while she waits or perhaps even swap her machine out for a new mini.
Be sure to backup her hard drive before taking it on in. Use something like SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner which can create a bootable backup to an external drive. If Apple decides to swap the entire machine out, she can be back up and running in no time by restoring the bootable backup.
