He he he.

JoeBob, I'm curious why there is a difference between your first and second preamps. If the wiring is absolutely identical, there must be a bad connection somewhere in the second. If they're not quite wired identically, what is the difference? Could you have something like a phono jack accidentally grounding to the chassis or something like that?
It really does sound like a ground loop with the experimental results you've posted. Hang in there, you'll get it solved.
