How does one stop DC leakage?
Hello folks... I'm having an issue with DC leakage... I think. I've addressed all the other things that could be culprits. though I've not yet tested for it with a meter that checks DC in/on the aC circuit or out of the preamp I have, I am of the opinion, the dozen or so little transformers which supply my PC gear and some Synergistic Audio cables, along with the ones suppling power to the fiber optic gear from Verizon are contributory factors.
I came to this conclusion by chasing down an overwhelming sibilance problem that arose after installation of the third part of a total fiber optics mass media system... phone, ISP, & CATV. The battery suppling the emergency power for phone was eliminated (disconnected,), almost immediately. Second I got a CATV ground loop 'interupter' which plugs into the coax itself outside the house by the main terminal.
those two things helped immensely! ...but more is needed as I found by securing the power to the equipment room where all the gear is located, along with all the PC gear too. That did it. throwing the breaker (s) supplying power to the room itself where all the little T-formers for the rest of the PC STUFF MADE THE SOUND AS DEAD QUIET AND SMOOTH AS i'VE YET HAD IT. Therefore, I'm inclined to think them little goobers do play a part here. A very bad part indeed. All was well for a time as the suspected DC ran out... Re-energizing that ckt once more has after a moderate amount of time, allowed the pest to return. Turning it off again and allowing for the DC to dissipate... quiet and smooth once more. So I can keep flipping breakers, OR....
I need a fix. I'd hate to spend big bucks for conditioning that sort of gear... OR MY main SYSTEM IF i CAN AVOID IT. i just want to stop what I believe is the DC from all those little cheap transformers from sneaking into the power supply.
Is there a strip, bar, or service panel remedy for this issue? Perhaps an "in wall" tricked up outlet that will suffice? I'd need SEVERAL, if so.
Your thoughts, experiences, and help here is more than welcome, and certainly needed. Thank you.
