    I have recently bought a Denon AVR 2803 and I am very pleased with it, I currently have this hocked up to a Arcam Alpha 9 amp which drives the front left and right speakers, the problem I have is that I am experiencing a low humming noise coming from these two speaker when both the amp and receiver are switch on, if I turn the receiver back to standby the noise stops. (I don’t experience the noise on any of the other speakers in my set up)

    Can anyone help?

    :lease:

    Do a search on here or google etc for "ground loop".
    It will be a grounding/earthing issue.

    Do you know if this little gizmo would stop noise from my laptop.
    The reason i ask is when i plug my head phones or Hi fi into the headphone socket on the laptop its picking up noise from inside not so much of a hum but background noise

    not sure, that sounds more like a sound card or driver issue to me?

    Thanks guys,

    Looks like it might be a ground loop, just need to find what is causing it, I will just have to spend some time taking my system apart and putting it back to gether until I find the problem.
