In Reply to: RE: A mere $12,000 for the new Grado top of the line cart. posted by Rick W on August 02, 2017 at 16:15:35
A $12k Grado?? I wonder if it hums like the rest of the line.
I experienced a hum with a Grado cart in a Music Hall table with an external speed box. Using a shielded/grounded cable from the speed box to the MH motor solved the hum problem.
From the description it doesn't seem to be a moving iron design like the rest so that " traditional" hum problem shouldn't occur.
I've never experienced hum with a Grado and I've had four or five, from the Black to the Reference Master.
Two friends have Grados on Rega tt's with zero hum. My Master did hum on my VPI 19. Mu metal around motor (and/or under platter) gets rid of it. Worked like charm for me.
