Hi, iv,e just purchased the teleton trp390/kenwood ka1010, and i,m getting hum from turntable, all connected properly inc. earth wire. i can use amp. up to 1/4 volume but hum obviously gets louder as i increase vol. On the amp side, the right balance is playing up, some times no sound at all or can be very crackly. i have used contact cleaner (very carefully) and it seems to have done the trick at the mo.
i only have record deck connected to the amp.

I have tried the teleton with my teac a-r630 but the hum is still there.

I read somewhere that people have connected the earth of the turntable to an external point i e a copper pipe, and this cures the problem ??

If anyone has any ideas i would much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance, Mike.
