5 Hours - doing the shelving shuffle
Posted by: Steve Hall on 06 August 2000
I've been reading about the ol'hum issue and contemplating a slight system reshuffle. I have a Sound Organisation 5 shelf tower stand (z650?) and its loaded with (in shelf order):
As you can see my 180 and the HiCap live above one and other, and I have picked up from various publications and the old forum that the transformers can be conversing and causing the HiCap hum to get worse. I have had the HiCap looked at and had the transformer etc tightened but to no avail. It is silent in the dealers shop, but it is also situated away horizontaly from anything with a transformer in it.
The system is also on a dedicated spur.
So in 5 hours, I want to dismantle the Z650 and resposition the kit and the shelving to give me the best results.
