    I have a Yamaha Rx-v1200 and an Adcom amp for my subs and rear surrounds. I'm getting an annoying hum when i have the 12v trigger cable hooked up.

    When i unplug the cable, the hum is gone.

    Any suggestions on how to eliminate this hum?

    Right now I have a simple 1/8 inch 2 conductor cable.

    Does anyone make a better cable for this?

    Maybe one with a high quality shielding?

    Or is this a more complex problem?

    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanx.

    Dave.

    David,

    It may be just a ground loop. Try a cheater plug from Radio Shack...see if it goes away. Cheater plug...takes the ground off...3 prong to 2 prong.
