is the amp itself humming or do u hear the hum through your speaks? if the former, the hum is likely from the transformer. this is not normal & will likely not b fixed with a power conditioner.

It is the amp itself for certain - not the speakers. I called Meridian and they said something about the transformer coil causing it, but that it wouldn't effect my performance. The hum has actually died down to almost nothing since I made this post, but then again, I'm still concerned. So far, no effect on performance. We'll see. Thanks for your feedback.
Hey, thanks Tap3 & 7671 - I've been listening closely since my post went up and as you said 7671, the hum is now only audible when my ear is pressed against the face of the amp. When I first heard it, it was audible away from the amp, but it only lasted for a few minutes. Maybe there was a power service problem that morning. Who knows - the amp still plays great, but I just hope it's not a sign of something worse to come. Thanks.
