Bose USB speaker play static pitch during playback

My brand new Bose Companion 5 USB speakers that are acting very strangely on my new Window 7 Ultimate 64 bit descktop. They will play music for a little while, but after maybe 10 minutes, they output horrible static pitch constantly. The pitch can change over time. I have to close the player such as iTune or Window Media player and restart the playback. Unplug and re plug the USB cable does not solve the problem. After searched Internet I have found a hint about the Power Options on USB device. After tried to switch off "USB selective suspend setting", the speakers behaviour normally:-)

Thought it might be useful to post this if anyone else encounters the same issue.

The step to disable the "USB selective suspend setting":

Open Control Centre/Power Options/Change plan settings/Change advanced power settings:
