Separate names with a comma.
I have lifted grounds to eliminate ground loops in the past, no need at my home now though.
Wow, can this open a can of nuclear worms? What a fantastic thread!!
PS: I am a professional agitator.
Ah, the mysteries of life.
Steady Mates! Careful there young men! Ground lifts can kill !!! Particularly with 240V mains voltages. What grizzled roadies *sometimes* get-away with on their hot-wired Marshall guitar amps -- I personally wouldn't take such risks, to myself or to others.
Proper hum-free grounding can always be achieved safely, with a little bit of effort.
Aren't there some few million regulations for this?
Ignore regulations--they only exist to protect the lower 5% of the gene pool.
The gears I'm talking about is newer compliant stuff, and floating ground.
I don't know whether I interpret wrongly but I find most of @Pietro Cozzi Tinin posts to be satirical in nature. Why so serious guys!
Schiit, so no news from RMAF? I'm outa here for a bit.
Live music tonight, some redneck rock from Bad Company & Lynyrd Skynyrd.
lol wrong thread to come to if you're actually interested in Schiit audio or audio stuff I guess ?
It has its moments. Most of the Schiit product discussions end up in the threads for specific items. This one ends up being a bit of a free for all and covers most topics you can think of. If you do have Schiit questions ask away though I am sure someone can help!
True but amp in active speaker or on a passive are two different worlds
If one takes himself to serious it becomes really easy to project this onto others.
If anyone was asking, I would say it explains a lot of things that go wrong in the world.
I said it anyway.
Not sure if this was fully answered for you, but I believe in the past Jason has said:
Hum from the amp = DC Offset on your power lines
Hum from the speakers = Ground loop (or noisy source)
Both should be audible from the listening position to be considered abnormal (it’s normal to have some hum when you’re right next to the amp).
DC offset can be solved by something like Emotiva CMX-2. For groundloops I believe Jason has recommended EBtech HumX
