    I have a Cyrus One Amp, theres a slight buzz coming from it, i think the humm/buzz is from the transformer on the power supply inside, may be feed back noise from something dont really know. Cant really hear it unless up close or at night when its silent in the room trying too sleep. I was wonder would changing the power cable to one of these ones i see in what hifi what are meant to eliminant noise that is in the power stop this buzz? like the merlin tarantula of the russ andrews classic powerkord.

    I believe two likely culprits will be transformer winding vibrations or some external (most likely) "DC offset" upsetting said transformer, which can also cause the former.
