Silly question- Are you using a Grado cartridge? I bought my Lux used and it came with a Grado cart and hummed like crazy (I think Grado's aren't shielded). Switched to a Ortofon OM and no more hum issues. Just to rule out one more thing...

Thanks, surface t. No Grado. The Luxman has an AT440MLa and the Dual is now running an ADC XLM MkII Improved.
