      • hi all. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if you have the parasound A23 and if so can you tell me if yours have a HUM from the unit.

        Am trying to fine out if it normal because I have the A23 and my one is Humming. I took it back to the dealer and they put a new transformer and that did not fixes it they think it normal and the repair guy said he could not hear it but me and my dealer could hear it and he said it louder then normal.

        so wondering if I should take it back. thanks guys.

          The mechanical transformer humming (i.e. humming even without speakers connected) could be caused by a DC-offset in the power of your home. That's why the repairman could not hear it. He was in a different location that has "clean" power. Have you tried a "hum buster" ? You can build one yourself or get a ready made one:

          • Thanks peter,

            I don't remember having a hum when I bought it. At my Hi-Fi shop it did HUM but at the repair place they said it did not HUM.

            I also have a Musical Fidelity M6i Amplifier and that does not Hum.

            I will have a look at the Hum Buster.

              That's a pretty clear cut case of bad power. Something has possibly changed in your neighborhood power grid that has caused the power quality to detoriate (new neighbors, new equipment, more use of fluorecent lighting, etc.). Toroidal transformers usually don't start to hum more with time. If they hum, they do so from day one.

              I believe PS Audio offers a 30 day in home trial. (Or at least their return policy for the Hum Buster is equivalent to that).

              • Have a look at this thread too. Post #159 has the schematic for a DIY DC-blocker (can be made for $10~$20)

                          One recently sold on eBay for $810. Use that as a ballpark figure.
