Default Desktop causing crackling noise on studio monitors

Hi all,

I have a pair of studio monitors and I'm getting a crackling noise on them all the time when they're plugged into the audio interface. Here are the scenarios:

- Studio monitors plugged into audio interface (Edirol UA-25EX) which is connected to my desktop (custom build). Crackling noise on both monitors.

- Studio monitors plugged into audio interface (Edirol UA-25EX) which is connected to my Macbook. No crackling noise, both when the laptop is plugged in to AC power and runs on battery.

I thought this might be a ground loop issue with the desktop, but I've read that ground loops cause a humming noise, not crackling.

What could the cause be?
