Thank you to all those who responded.
It turns out the reason for the hissing sound from our speakers was that 
the volume control had been moved on the front of our Genelecs which 
magnified the background noise.  I wish I would have noticed that a lot 
sooner :), but your responses give me some good background on the 
speaker options available and why to choose them.
Thanks again,
