Just noticed one of the Loki's was humming through the speakers, hum increases when I turn up the 400hz dial. Didn't notice any increase when turning up the 20hz, 2kHz or 8kHz dials.

Swapped in the other Loki and the same thing, swapped in the other Loki's wall adaptor the and same thing again.

Tried moving the Loki around and the nearer it is to the Analogue Puccini (particularly it's internal toroidal transformer), or the Aegir power amp or the Loki's wall adaptor the louder the hum gets.

Moved the Loki off the hi fi rack and as far from the wall adaptor as possible, any hum is inaudible to my deaf ears.

But that's no solution - it looks messy and I have a Loki sitting all alone on the carpet....

Is there a solution to this one?

Just read the manual and it seems this can and does happen if the Loki is placed near units with internal transformers. Looks as if I'll have to try re-arranging the hi fi rack and get the Loki as far away as possible from the amplifiers.
