Do these have any background noise when they are on standby? That's my biggest issue with my current monitors and I want a new pair that will be absolutely silent for noise floor, with a bit of a SQ upgrade for good measure.

Sounds like your source is noisy and/or you have a router/cell phone/radio interference nearby. That's no fault of your monitors.

No, even without a source they make a noise. It's very quiet, but I can definitely hear at night.

Again... that's radio interference from nearby electronics. Move your router and/or PC tower away from your speakers.

Yes, It's audible hissing noise with twitter at very quite or near field conditions
But if you can make enough distance with speakers, It wouldn't be significant

Yes I have these, not source got dac magic plus which is perfect silent background. Small but audible hiss. Get 705p or neumann 120s for better quality

I think he(or she) saids the background noise
LSR 3 Series has background noiss issue fora long time (not really loud, but audible level)
Maybe grounding and EMI shielding makes more quiet environment, but It haven't effect on background noise.

Sometimes, the noise is also coming from your power source. A high-end power conditioner can fix this, but most affordable power conditioners can only do so much to reduce A/C noise.

1. Check your AC ground. You would be surprised how many times I find this issue is because of a bad ground or ground loop.
2. Make sure there are no microwaves, tv's or other electronics other than your computer(on or off) within 15 feet of the speakers.
3. Make sure your computer is properly grounded and there are no ground loops.
4. Make sure you have a good ground and no loops on your DAC.
5. Make sure you are using only an external DAC and all internal sound devices are disabled in your bios.
6. Check your AC for a clean sine wave.

These speakers are not entirely silent. The amps make a tiny bit of hissing noise that is audible from about 6inches away.

No they dont. You have a grounding problem most likely. Ive had lsr308s as my farfield mixing set up for years now and theyre dead silent with proper connections and power.
