Success! No buzz or hum anymore. Problem was the ground connecting from the input. I made a single ground connection for both left and right input channels and that is what i changed. Now both channels have a separated connection to the star ground.

Thanks for the advise. Learned a lot building this amp.

And now i am going to enjoy some music!

It does indeed look nice! Are you using transformers from Loëwe, the ones that are available from radiotwenthe?
