I’m hearing a lightly audible hash from 8’ on the system below when everything is on but no music or video playing (the active speakers alone are quiet when on). Electricity starts from living room wall to PowerBase and the Furutech outlet is wired correctly, including the ground. Perhaps I should take the accept the notion of set-up expert Jim Smith, who has written that he finds systems with a little hash sound better than quiet ones, but I am curious… This is a 1970’s condo and major rewiring is not in the cards. Any thoughts?
- Furutech outlet
- PowerBase and P15 Regenerator -
- AC-12 power cords to Oppo 203, DS dac, Samsung HDTV, cable box and ATC SCM19A speakers.
- IC’s are HDMI/I2S and PAD Neptune coax from Oppo to DS, and MG Audio AG2S2 XLR’s from DS to speakers.
- Cords are off the floor on DIY wooden spindle stands and separated by 1/2-1" or more from each other with rubber/wood blocks as well as possible, given the number involved and proximity of everything
