Thanks for the suggestion about it being a ground loop. I tried it at
home here with the laptop on battery power - with no change.
At my office, there was no noise problem at all.
The difference is that at home I was plugging the card into an powered
external USB hub (ZoneNet 7-port USB2). I reshuffled USB connectors to
give the sound card its own USB port and the noise went away.
Lovely sounding card - amazing how the Intel HDA sound chip makes the
sound muddy, murky and distorted ...
