That's interesting. Funny how the servo tx was not a big jump by itself, but I totally believe it was necessary for the sound I'm getting now. Nope, all my transformers are way over in the far top left corner. The new output tx was a fair swap for the original KI one, and that's the furthest right they go. I don't have resistors on my op-amp output - can we discount that? The increase in noise volume seems oddly exponential when I turn the dial.

Nope, I don't have one. The whole system floats.

Haha, edited just in the nick of time for gross factual inaccuracy (just woke up). My system runs off a big 3kw mains converter that has no earth pin connected. Other sources are completely silent though. Since I added the clocks, the hum has taken on a lower frequency looping sound at about 2Hz. It kinda sounds like a car engine idling. I must stress, not audible at playback levels - only when paused and volume turned up very loud.

My off-board regs use screw connectors. I'm just gonna try unplugging stuff to see if I can make it go away :-)

Do you think you have created an earth loop with one of your PSU's?

I have removed the RC switch from the rear of the player and it still won't accept a command. Do I need to connect any jumpers or anything?

with the switch removed from the board, the unit will be set to use its internal IR receiver.

Have you checked the remote? If its not been suggested already, you can use a digital camera to check its operation as they will show up IR light.

I'll try that. Do the receiving sensors fail?

Its possible but I've not heard of it. Check that you have 5v on both sides of RY11 near the ribbon to the front panel. Its the supply to the receiver.
