Before connecting audio cables, first check to see that all devices are grounded using grounded plugs and grounded sockets. In addition, all devices should be turned off, before connecting any audio or digital cables. If the devices are not grounded, a voltage potential difference between devices can cause a voltage surge through the audio cable that can weaken and eventually damage sensitive circuits in D/A converters and other devices.
