RE: VK-3i hum- back to BAT (or cables)

i have a 3i bought new and have really loved it. I had a hum issue that followed tubes once (questionable 6v6) but never something bilateral. I suppose it could be a ground loop related to 60 hz stuff. it might be worth trying a shielded RCA cable as well. otherwise, Victor will get you up and running very quickly, and it is probably time to have PS caps checked for DC leak, as your unit is probably 20 yrs old by now. the shipping will be painful, but otherwise BAT service fees are vey reasonable. Good luck
