Got my speakers setup today, these speakers are excellent. I don't even have the bass cranked, its at about 1/2 to 2/3 and it vibrates my desk. I only have one issue so far, but I fixed it. I had an issue with having the speakers plugged into the same power bar as a lamp. The lamp turning off and on caused the speakers to make a "pop" noise. I just put the lamp on an extension cord to a separate wall socket. Definitely will consider using massdrop again.

Great to hear yours are working properly! As unfortunate as it is at least a few other people in the thread are having the radio interference issue so you know I wasn't just trolling you. :)

By some of the claims of UPS manufactures, the radio signal noise is coming from the wall. So a UPS will fix that issue.
EDIT: Not entirely sure yet, but I am almost certain that the speakers have demagnetized almost all of my cards (Bank, credit, etc). I left my wallet near (about a foot) the speakers while watching a tv show. It had never crossed my mind before as to leaving my wallet near a speaker. Well i guess Swan had to compromise allot to sell these speakers for $90 a unit.

If you check the top comment in this thread: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882619002 maybe it is not a power supply issue or the speakers are extremely sensitive to power supply.

I can't seem to find what your hinting at.
The popping is definitely not coming from the audio source. I can play a song from my phone which has its own battery and when I turn on or off a lamp the speakers will pop.

I have a UPS and still get the radio station issue, so it definitely isn't wall noise there. I never had a 'popping' issue like you had, so maybe the UPS fixes that. That sucks about the cards though, I thankfully haven't had that issue with mine (granted I'm not using them any longer). Either way, these speakers suck if they're that sensitive. Total garbage and I will never buy another Swan product.

The reviewer claimed that he tried a bunch of different speakers from the same power strip and only m10's had radio interference. So, it is either not a power strip or these are way too sensitive to power source. Sounds like UPS would not help from the comment below.

the UPS solved my popping issue. Fun fact, not all UPS counter RFI. Only UPS that specifically state that they do have an RFI/EMI filter will fix this issue.
