|The other night my Classe amplifiers started producing a substantial mechanical hum. Classe told me that it was likely from DC on the power line. The hum was there even when the preamp was switched to standby, and even when I plugged the amps into different sockets.|
1) how much DC on the powerline does it take to cause problems with audio equipment?
2) How does DC get into the AC signal on the power line?
3) Do the power companies have any spec they need to acheive for maximum DC?
4) Or is it more likely appliances within my house causing the DC.
