Re: Ground Loop Problem

Stainless, Run another ground wire between the two Breaker Boxes. This way you can be sure they are both grounded together. DSStwo.jpg Then check for hum again. Also... Check the AC Outlets the Amp, and Rcvr 1 & 2 are plugged into. You could have Grounding problems there as well. Signed: Janitor Tzap

CAT-5 or CAT-6 patch cords are of stranded wire.
Yeah, I've got some CAT-5 and CAT-6 in my wire pile.
