    Default crackling mains

    My sister in law recently bought a wee flat but she is having some issues with loud crackling intermittently coming through the speakers.

    Ive ruled out the gas boiler/TV/AMP/ SPEAKERS/DAC.

    The main issue is when she tries to play a movie on her 4k blu ray or listen to music with an attached hard drive-crackling happens every couple of minutes.

    Ive put rfi chockes on all the power supplies, tried changing sockets for the mains block.

    Even plumbed in my balanced mains-still there.

    swapped in my same model blu ray/psu/hdmi....still there!

    Any thoughts....thought maybe fridge/leccy meter/somebody in the block with a defective something feeding muck into the mains.

    System works fine with the TV doing music or streaming-im stumped!

    Help please!

    I would be looking at Fridge/ freezer etc.
    But if it only happens with the HDD, then maybe that is the issue?

    HDD plays fine when plumbed into the telly.

    The only time it crackles is when the blu ray player is on.

    Fridge is plumbed into the kitchen-dont fancy pulling her nice fitted kitchen to bits.

    Her leccy meter is a pre pay job, she has to wait untill April to get the meters changed.

    Could be Blu-ray player picking up mobile phone signals if it is coming and going, maybe from other flats above or below, or possibly as Struth says(Grant).

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes
