"If you are the owner of a new stereophonic system, this record will play with even more brilliant true-to-life fidelity. In short, you can purchase this record with no fear of its becoming obsolete in the future."
My Cronus Magnum exhibited a bit of mechanical transformer noise, not any hum that could be heard through my speakers. Turned out to be some DC offset voltage present in my AC line. No fault of the Cronus Magnum.
Eliminated the DC voltage by running the power through an inexpensive (on sale @$79 at the time) Emotiva CMX-2 filter. Noise is gone, I've been a happy camper ever since.
...but I suppose there could be depending on ground loops or possibly with very sensitive speakers.
I've also heard of people experiencing mechanical hum from transformers which I've been told can indicate a problem with the AC mains, possibly high distortion on the AC or possibly DC riding on the line??
But no, I have no hum from the Cronus Magnum in my system.
