    RQ-970BX

    I just purchased the RQ-970BX to hook up an older Oracle turnable to the RSP-1066. I am having so problems with a very audible hum. I have tried the following:
    - checking all connections
    - moving the amps
    - moving the power supply
    - disconnecting the turntable from the RQ-970BX - hum gone
    - disconnecting turntable power supply - better but hum very audible

    It would appear to be a turntable issue but does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Assuming your turntable is properly grounded... try very gently moving the wiring to the cartridge... it's not unheard of for them to shift position slightly over time, which compromises the connection, which can be a cause of hum... it's happened to me a couple times on 'tables i'd owned for several years... carefully shifting them back into position always remedied that.

      That did the trick. I removed the connectors, cleaned and re-applied. Presto.

      Thanks again.
