It seems the AIAIAIs are definitely the problem (the cable).
I'll try the other cable that came with the AIAIAIs to make sure...
At least I don't have to change the amp! ;-)
P.S. Jason, bought 3 of your books on Amazon yesterday (Mecha's and Mars...)! LOL. Will get the Panverse Three later on. Thanks.
I had this issue too with my TBSE (DJ100 with removable cable) and Magni. My stock cable was dead so I used a cheap cable with poor shielding. Got weird noises as well, but very rarely was it audible. I tested about 6 different cables I had around and some gave me zero noise at all. Strangely the worst one was the Cardas HP1 (cost me $35) and Monoprice Car Audio (thinner) cables. The super thick ones from Monoprice were perfect but nobody is dumb enough to use those as a headphone cable.
My favorite store bought cable is the $9 Ge Ultra Pro (Target). It's the kind that has metal shielding and a clear plastic cover. Looks cool too. I only bought it for the shielding!
One reason I love cheap Mogami is that it has really good shielding.
Could always try some Ferrite Beads on the Magni wall wart too. $3 or so at Radio Shack.
