hum

  1. CD Players | Turntables
    It's really disappointing not to be able to use my task light for its intended purpose. Mounted on the side of my turntable's dust cover, my wall-wart powered LittleLite induces a low-level hum into the cartridge circuit even when the lamp is turned off! Stranger still: the hum only starts...

    I start this thread only to share my experience so it could help someone somewhere. My HT system is completly silence with no ground loop problem and that since the begin and what ever gears I have in the chain. My system is always completly silent.No hum at all. But, this week-end, I...
  3. Hum

    Pro Audio
    A friend of mine found this good article about XLR to RCA, or to 1/4 phono, and hums. It is a very good read IMO, and my friend is making me a new cable to the specs in the article to see if it eliminates the hum from going from the balanced XLRs to the RCAs on our Parasound amps. We have tried...

    I have a Techniques SL-B20 turntable. I bought a Grado Gold cartridge for it an it hums. Has anyone else had this issue? I put it on and slid it into the PMount and tightened the set screw. I turned on the amp and pushed the tone arm and hum came across my speakers. I paid nice sum for it. I...

  6. System Setup and Connection
    Hi, I did some research on this, and I can't seem to find a good answer under these circumstances. I just bought a brand new Pinnacle Subsonic subwoofer, and I'm noticing a hum/buzz from the unit. Even if I unplug all rca connections and keep the volume down it is still present. It seems to be...

    Hi I've just got the Dayton Audio UMM-6 microphone and got the REW installed on the laptop. My issue is that when I connect the laptop to the Receiver (Denon X4000) through Aux, there is an audible hum. Increase in volume makes it louder. Ive tried connecting my phone through the same cable...

    I am stumped about a hum when watching a light-colored image on my 65VT60. I've read about humming plasmas, ground loops, bad transformers, and so forth, but this hum is coming from my front speakers. I am unsure where to start diagnosis, because the hum does not come from the transformer area...

    I've a FBQ1000 in my home theater installation for the sub. It works fine but since all my equipment is remote controlled except th FBQ, I wanted to use a remote controlled power switch to turn on and off the unit. The FBQ power switch left at the ON position and the remote controlled relay...
  11. System Setup and Connection
    I've got an emotiva umc200/upa500 combination. When I first set it up about a year ago I remember testing it by turning it up to full volume with nothing playing and there was not a hint of hum in the system. Recently though I have noticed a pretty obvious hum coming from all 5 speakers. I first...

    I purchased a xpa 5(gen 1) earlier this year in March. Immediately after attaching the rca's the dreaded "hum" was there. Ground loop? Always is.... but who's fault is it? Your equipment? Interconnects? Cable box? Lack of a power conditioner? ........... All of them are a maybe? Ok, so what...
  13. Two Channel Audio
    Hi, I just bought a RCA Victor Custom Series 711 which is in mint physical condition. Really nice credenza radio/turntable. It has an intense ground hum and the left speaker is very quiet. The headphone out behaves the same way so I believe it to be the amp. I've looked inside and it...
  14. AV Home Theater
    Good afternoon Y'all' Im scratching my head on this one and can use your help. I changed my family room around and put my AV set up on the opposite wall. I had the equipment in a vertical tower and TV stand combo and it was working fine. This is where the bizarre ground loop type of hum issue...
  15. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have an Adcom GFA-7500 power amp, and noticed yesterday there is a mild, buzzing sound coming from the unit (not through the speakers). Any thoughts on what it could be?? I unplugged the power cord from power strip, and plugged directly into the wall. There was no buzz at first, but then...
  16. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    So at baseline my monitors have this "usb" sound. That's the only way I can describe it... it's about 1khz and modulates like a cd drive reading something. Any idea what this is or what one can do to minimize it???

    Hey guys, I've just purchased my first sub (well not exactly first, but I haven't had one in more than 10 years), and I'm in the process of integrating it into my 2 channel system (which also serves as HT system). I'm hoping that you can help me get things properly set up. My system...

    I have a basic Sony Blu Ray home theater system with 5 surround sound speakers all directly wired to the Home theater unit. Today when I turned on the TV with the home theater system turned off there was a hum or buzz coming from the front 2 speakers. It has never done this is in the 8 months I...

    I am not sure this is the right Forum to ask for help re Xover. I have been using the Energy EAC Crossover for many months. This morning , I decided to bypass the Xover so I made some interconnect changes. After testing my speakers without Xover , I reconnected the Xover and now suddenly I...
  20. REW Forum
    Hello all, Sorry about making so many posts but does anyone's Behringer ECM 8000 mic make a humming noise when you grab it by the front thinner section? Mine makes a huge hum when you grab it there. I think it's defective. Also when I get the mic near any power outlet or light switch in my...
