If the DBX has a three prong power cable, try using a two prong adapter. If this does not work try another pair of patch cables and be certain that they are plugged in all of the way.

Rwwear, thanks for responding! I have the same cables that I
was using on my home theater plugged into the tube amp. I know they are plugged in all the way. The power cable is just a 2 prong cable and I have reinserted the power cables
in different directions on both the reel to reel and dbx unit. I suppose it's possible that when I removed the patch cables something could have broken in them but they worked fine on the other receiver. I will test them asap and let you know the outcome. Thanks again!
Well, I tested the cables and they are fine. I disconnected the dbx all together and just had the reel to reel plugged into the amp and it still makes the noise. It also gets louder when I turn up the volume so I am wondering now if it is the output on the amp? The tape deck does not make any noise unless it is connected to the tape out on the amp.
The tape input works fine. Any thoughts?
