Q about switching from cd to aux. on my Jolida

Hi all,

Not so much a concern, but just a question. When I switch from CD to aux. (in this case, my computer) on my Joilda tube, amp -- 302 -- if I don't explicitly turn the cd player off, I can faintly hear the cd playing. Why is that?


what you are hearing is called cross-talk between inputs.
It can be an issue with some components caused by insufficient isolation between inputs. It shouldn't happen and normally doesn't on high quality equipment. In my experience it is more likely with cheaper components. It reflects the cost cutting and circuit topology to meet a price point.
