Is mechanical coupling of source/amp bad?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Specifically, mechanical coupling from the output of my Imod to the input of my amp. As you can see on the picture, I joined the two plugs with a bunch of zip-tie to gain some structural strength and relieve stress from the jacks.
I was wondering if any vibration from the ipod harddrive might make it to the signal because of what I have done here..

Your question is about the grounds being connected I think and the ground is supposed to be near the source and not the load. Other than that observation I can't help you.

I really don't know if it is bad but the Audio Technica A900LTD has its ground connected at a second location other than its plug at its source the amp.
