|Hi All, I would like to say I am new to channel after a long recovery from mid-fi! I am building a system in my home office. It consists of; Jolida 302crc (new tubes tried ), Jolida glass FX Dac, Jolida jd9, Rotel 2500 turntable..., pioneer elite pd65. Monitor Audio Silver RX2, Epos M Sub.|
AQ rocket 88 speaker cable, AQ IC's.
So, the Jolida 302 is new. Since the first setup there has been a hum from both speakers. For the last month, I have been going insane throwing time and money at the problem. I have read, I think, every post on audiogon bout hum and the related links connected to other sites.
So, this AM, I am chasing the problem again, and I noticed that when I disconnect the negative speaker connection on the right speaker it goes away. Dead silent. Plug it back in and It returns. If I do this on the left speaker, it does not go away. Thes are biwired speakers and the hum only goes away on the right speaker, negative, low Freq posts. If I switch speaker sides, hum is still there but removing the right negative does nothing.
Is it the negative speaker post on the amp?
Is it the negative speaker post on the speaker?
Is it the cable?
Could the ground in the amp or the speaker be loose on the right neg. post?
I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I think I am going to need counseling if I don't solve this.
Thanks in advance,
