Re: Plinius 8150: Noise Problem

Posted by Norm Strong on June 14, 2000 at 19:16:08:

What frequency is the hum. Check it against a piano. It is either 120Hz or 60Hz. If the former, it's a problem with the amplifier, if the latter it still might be a problem with the amp, but it's probably either pickup or a grounding loop.

An amplifier of that price should be flat out PERFECT. I would not tolerate any perceptible fault.
