QSXM2 is finished since a few month now. Head amp with MAT02/03
Wiring with Carda Litz shielded
Tranformer is C core
PSU is SSR03
Sound is very good
In MC mode I have just a very very small hum but still present...
Can I put, without downsides, only the power transformer in a separate enclosure ?
It seems that it is not a very common solution
We usually see a raw DC PSU (transformer, rectifier, capacitors) in the separate enclosure, regulators and phono board in the main enclosure.
It might help with an external transformer but check first if you don't have any ground loops.
Ground loop inside the phono ?
I have only
inputs left and right
Outputs left and right
PSU: +18 0 -18
and a wire to chassis
What happens if you remove the turntable and short the inputs? Still hum?
