Default Well, I don't think it's the power supply...

Huzzah! It's now outputting a clean 14.76 or so volts! Unfortunately, I just get a buzzing noise when the amplifier's on, even with a source plugged in and running. The amp I'm using is QKit's K50. Schematics and specifications can be found here.

Raffir, according to those notes, the amp should have a PSU with +/- 25 volts! How have you got 14.76 volts and do you mean that you have +/- 14.76 volts?

We'll need some more information to help you.

Yes, is +/- 14.76 volts. I assumed that I could run at a lower power and get lower power output. Is this assumption incorrect?

Yes that should be enough voltage to get you running. I think that Matttcattt is running his GC on the same supply.

First off, do Qkits offer any after sales advice?

If not, go to my beginner's page and carefully check that you have followed ALL the advice there. You'll find it

Raffir,

I suppose you only have one transformer and my coments are based on that.
Connect one very short and thick wire from one channel's star ground point to the other one.
You'll have to join the two boards close toguether.
Then connect the ground wire from the PSU to the middle of that thick ground wire.
Then fire it up and see what happens.
