Question How save is a ground loop breaker?

Hi!
Ok...built Holtons lateral amp, it works.
The only problem I have is a hum (with harmonics). It only occours when I connect preamp/cd/dvd...
These have only the 2 pole plugs, so don't have a seperate ground connection really. So I guess the hum comes from a ground loop.
I want to try the ground loop breaker mentioned by rod elliot.
My question now is: How save is such a thing?
Is there still a real ground connection? And if there is, how does it work then?
Thank you for all replys!
Konstantin
