Linn Klimax DS Mk2 with hum noise
Hi


We have a problem with my father´s Linn Klimax DS Mk2. It starterd to make a hum noise through XLR outputs.
I´ve tried to solve it changing the xlr cables, changing the power cord, bypassing the power filter, changing the preamp input, and downgrading the software without any success.
When using RCA cables, the hum disappear.

¿does anybody know what can I do?

Many thanks

You could try moving the DS to a different location. The XLR outputs are transformer coupled and the transformers might be picking up mains hum from some other nearby piece of equipment.

Not heard of this one before. As you have ruled out all the obvious things like leads, this one is for the guys at Linn.

Oh, just one thing, the KDS needs to be earthed properly, can you try another mains socket?
