New RBS50: Static coming over my PC speakers - how to fix?

Hello.  I just installed the Orbi during my lunch break from work.  Everything went off without a hitch.  The wi-fi signal is strong.  I am very happy overall, but I am getting a ton of feedback over my PC speakers... hiss, snap, crackle, and pops.  It is constant except when I unplug the router.  Does anyone know what is happening or how I can fix it?  All that racket is very annoying, as I leave my speakers on all the time.  Even when I played some music, I heard the feedback.

 

Just installed and upgraded to the latest firmware.

Have you tried to change the wireless channel of the router?

Thanks for the response.  I have not.  But the weird thing is, I rebooted a couple of times and moved the speakers just a few inches farther away, and now I am not hearing it.  I'm going to reserve judgement a few days to see how it goes, but... maybe I got lucky?
