    Nope. Usually makes it worse. And is almost always against code.
  2. What I Got Today!

    MAY NOT be a ground loop. May be common impedance coupling. There IS a scientific way to figure out what the problem is(and solve it). @Youthman did you start a thread about your issue? I think we've polluted this thread enough.
  3. What I Got Today!

    Ah yea as in of course it COULD.
  4. What I Got Today!

    Resistance of the shield is most important? I had never heard that before. But there is far more I don't know than what I do know. Yes Sir, the most important. In un balanced equipment the shield is carrying the signal ground current and the inter chassis ground currents. If the resistance is not extremely low the inter chassis ground currents will be a noise voltage that is added to the signal at the sending device and the receiving device is going to amplify it because it cannot discern between signal and noise.

    In un balanced interconnects the most important factor is the resistance of the shield. The capacitance per foot is important also but unless we're talking about ridiculous amounts of capacitance and long runs it doesn't matter much. We're not listening to anything at 1 megahertz Most of us older guys aren't listening to anything above 15 kilohertz

    Read about their double shielding. I'll wager it is the lower resistance of the extra shield that accounts for the audio quality.

    P-A-R-T-Y well someone had to say it

    ^Whew! When I first started reading I thought you were going say dropped 1 or worse fell off the ladder. 10 years of dust we can handle.

    yea I had a Technics SL1100(1200??) with an SME arm and a Shure V15 type III. F'ing bastards stole it along with all my Mac gear. But for some reason they didn't take the LaScalas.

    I think it would have taken a brick

    BTW, did anybody in the history of the world ever get a clean pressing in vinyl of that album? I could never get a copy that the needle would stay in the groove---clicks and pops surface noise OMG . Was so glad when I was able to get a CD of it.

    Going mobile. ^Yea my bad, sorry Apologies to @WillyBob

    Is this the sweet spot?
