All cables could cause this. Also a temp fix on the receiver pick a back case screw piece of wire to the screw on the center of your outlet. If that works you can go even further and rewire the receiver power cord to make it a 3 prong using the GND wire and make a permanent screw lug through the case. I've had to do this for running all the pro amps. Polarized plugs (2 prong) don't play nice with pro 3-pronged equipment.
Ugh... I'm going to have to chew on this one... Yes, I had a dedicated circuit installed specifically for the Clone, so my equipment is technically running on two seperate circuits.
My AVR does in fact have dual prong. Is there a three prong outlet plug that I can purchase for my AVR that would fix the issue? Would I really have to re-wire anything?
I'm a bit inexperienced when it comes to electrical.
do not like the idea of running a wire from a "case screw to the center of your outlet"... Man that sounds horribly schiesty!
