Sounds like a ground loop to me. They are a bear to isolate because it has nothing to do with how the music signal flows but rather how each device derives their ground. Hosa are good and switching to an alternate won't help. The problem is some device is establishing a new alternate ground potential [voltage] when you make that connection. I'll try to come up with a solution in a moment.
UPDATE. I'm back. OK idea 1: Kill/sever the outer shield of the hosa trigger wire by unsoldering it at one end so only the inner conduit of electricity works..
In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
