Hi everyone,
problem is both on macOS and windows, I have my Akitio Node with GTX 1070ti connected via tb3-2 to my mbpro 15" mid 2015, and noticed when playing back videos, games or even pictures sometimes, both my external speakers (KRK5) connected via minijack to my mbp start going crazy, I can still hear what's playing but it distorts like hell, if I'm moving the mouse or closing / opening app or whatever.
Never found anyone on this forum with the same problem, but I read an answer somewhere else about the minijack port being too close to the tb2 port and that may cause interferences. I have tried with adapters, nothing worked, speakers are fine as I tested them with my smartphone. Any thoughts? Thanks!
