    Hi all,

    I have a problem with a ground loop coming from a USB cable. My amplifier is connected to a DAC via USB but unfortunately there is a serious hum coming from the USB cable. I tried other cables, ferrite beads, rearranging the power cables and power outlets - nothing works. It seems that the only way left to try is an USB ground isolator. My question is: does the AudioQuest AA02 Jitterbug work as such? Any input is much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Emil

    AFAIK, the AudioQuest AA02 Jitterbug does not incorporate galvanic isolation.
