    Hi,

    My Rega deck seems to have developed a humming problem, when the arm is parked then everything is quiet but if you swing the arm over the platter mains hum can be heard increasing in volume towards the center of the platter!!!! Any ideas how to cure this???

    Thanks,
    Morb666

    Well, I moved the deck further away from the Amp and problem solved. Odd that it's decided to be a problem now after a couple of years with no problems!! Nevermind at least it's easy to solve with just a bit of judicious seperates placement.

    Cheers,
