I have it hooked up to a Pioneer Elite SC-57 and Martinlogan EM-ESL speakers and the hum is really Loud. I am new to this and have no idea what to try to fix or is there a chance something is wrong with the amp. My SC-57 when on its own it was as quiet as can be. I have it hooked up with audioquest type 4 with spades for the amp and banana to the ESL's. I hooked to SC with Blue Jean interconnects as everyone said they were great. Please I was so excited to get this amp and set up but this blows and this LOUD hum is omni present just makes me want to unhook and throw out the window so please help im clueless. Thanks eek.gif

Try the hum faq http://www.avsforum.com/t/322698/hum-faq

"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz
