[arm-allstar] URI audio noise

You wouldn't believe it! I completely eliminated the noise by moving my ground from URI pin 13 to pin 20. The Schematic that DMK offers for the URI shows all Ground pins tied to a common ground point, so maybe this is specific to mine.
Thanks Doug, and everyone else, for bearing with all the questions, hopefully some other newbie will find them helpful one day in a search.

This could also come from a fan as many small fans used for rig cooling are actually AC fans with internal switchers. I have often seen this type of EMI and a RC filter works well in that case. About a 30-50 Ohm resistor in series and a 500-1000uf cap to ground on the 12V lead to the fan.
