humming noise coming out from my speakers. I have setup a dedicated 2 channel system apart from my ht piece by piece. I started with the speakers, the ss amp and finally a tube preamp. I've noticed a very faint hum when it is on which is okay by me since when I turn up the volume the music drowns it. Now I do have a video cd player and when I hooked up the video cable from the player to input of my rptv that faint hum will amplify so loud which is very irritating. I've swapped the vcd player to a dvd player using component cables for video and still the same loud hum is there. Its very irritating specially when I viewing concerts. The problem only occurs when I hooked up the video cable from the source to the rptv other than that the sound is okay. I already consulted a friend of mine and even himself is stoked with this. Probably some of you guys might have encountered this same problem...please help me out. I do also have a separate component cables and coax from satellite that is hooked up to the tv which when I unhook it the loud hum would go away...strange. Sorry about the lengthy description. Here's my setup: ss amp - pass labs x150 tube preamp - asl aq2004 dt speakers - jbl monitors interconnects - regular cables Thnx for any input.
