Aavik U150 vs. Gryphon Diablo-300 vs. whatever ???

Following up... the hotel offered to move us last evening late but my wife had already settled in for the night so we decided to just get the exercise! 
Where do I start!?!
Most current preamp products have both XLR and RCA outputs.  Get something like the PS Audio BHK signature pre and you are fixed up.  There are a number of these excellent units on the used market at present at around $3k.  Just remember to have f...

I can strongly recommend Supratek. 
Hum Super Sleuth Needed
Found it!  Freaking cable box sitting one shelf under the noisy amp.  Must be broadcasting RF.  Moved and solved.  I was just before taking the back off the amp. 
Hum Super Sleuth Needed
delkal...  Thanks, the speakers are not powered though they are horns thus any hum is very noticeable.  Note that the other monoblock is dead quiet.
