I have a Zoom H4 also.  I have not noticed any noise other than if i have
the microphone set with med or high gain.. it stays on low.  From your
email, I cannot tell if the noise appears when you are using the H4 as an
input and another sound card for the output or if the noise only appears
when the H4 is used for output.  I normally use the internal soundcard for
output with the H4 only as input.  You might also try setting the H4 to use
the two balanced jacks (instead of the microphone) and see if the noise is
still around.
