Static coming from Phono Stage?
« on: September 18, 2017, 11:14:50 AM »
I have a Rega Fono Mini A2D which I use for my Pro-Ject Genie RPM1. When I switch to the relevant channel on my amp, there's a relatively load buzz coming from the speakers. As soon as I unplug the Rega's power source the buzz is gone. What should I do?

Have you run the earth wire from Genie to the Rega?

If yes does connecting it or disconnecting it make any difference?

Do you know how to use a multimeter to measure continuity from earth post on Turntable to a bare metal part of the arm?

Have you perhaps placed the rega Phono on top of a large amplifier?

Furthermore if the T/T is close to the TV set it will cause more or less the problems you describe.
