I just received my newly aquired used BSS and I can't seem to get it to work properly in my system. I get a lot of what I think is 50-60Hz hum and the out put is tremendously low. The noise floor is very high if you know what I mean. I tried to change gain level at both inputs and outputs but this doesn't seem to fix it.
My setup is as follows: ARC LS7 unbalanced tube preamp-->BSS 366T -->ARC VT60 tube power amp & NAD 218 poweramp, both run unbalanced.
I live in an old house (1892) and there is no grounded power outlets in any room except where the pellet boiler is. I did try to take the power from this outlet but there was no difference in the level of noise.
I have studied the BSS papers in regards to connectivity when using it together with unbalanced units, and I think I have all the connections wired in the right way.
I will run off and by som RCA-XLR adapters now to see if this solves the issue.
If this is a ground problem, where can I earth the unit/units since there is no ground pins in the AC outlets?
Thankfull for any input.
