    I found out the source of my HUM
    It's coming from the interconnects from my CABLE BOX PREAMP
    I got a Xantech ground breaker to alleviate the problem
    Unfortunately, it created another...HUM bars.

    Option 1: Leave as is and experience HUM
    Option 2: Use Xantech ground breaker and get no HUM, but HUM bars instead
    Option 3: Just use TV Speakers

    There's got to be a better way though

    Please advise

    I had a hum in both my apartment and the house I just bought coming from the cable connection and infecting the subwoofer amp. I got a Panamax Max 4300. Got right rid of it.
