[QUOTE=holyspidoo;1985667]I notice that when the fridge starts, there is a “pop” sound in my speakers.
That should be normal in US electricity installations. It can be explauned with the low voltage used in the US (only 110V) and the cables have often an inadequate diameter. If the compressor of the fridge starts it needs for a short moment a more energy than during the run of the compressor.
Most of the PC Speaker Systems are made very simple (and are cheap) and are not good enough protected again interferences from the power line. If your fridge starts and you hear music you hear the interference from the power line since you speaker power supply is not good enough stabilized (not enough capacities (tantal capacities and electrolytic capacitor)) were used to to straighten out the fluctuation of the voltage.
I was wondering if, while burning an audiocd, if the fridge starting could cause an audio glitch?
I don’t think that you will hear any noises on your burned CD if your fridge starts during your burning process. The computer power supplies are normally good designed and filter most fluctuations from the power line out. The reason is that the computer components like motherboard, CPU, memory,… needs very excact and very stable power with only very less variations in the voltage. If the variations are to high the system may crash (with or without bluescreen) or the system hangs or is instable in other ways. For this reason you’ll find a lot capacities on computer components since they filter out noises and glitches from the power.
Hope I could help a little?
