this is the rca cable that i am using: http://www.e-shop.gr/show_per.phtml?id=PER.750723.

I think that has only one ground cable, that splits on two in the end. So a ground loop between amplifier and the source can't occur..is that correct?

No, not correct - as soon as both the white and red rcas are connected to your amp, there's a ground loop.

Here's my suggested topology, wiggly hand drawn lines not to be taken too literally...

Then when you've listened to this version, change it to the one you had earlier and see if you hear a difference.
