Re: hearing my engines revs through my speakers

I had the same problem and bought a ground loop isolator:-

It worked for me, plug it into you amp and then plug your phono leads into it.

My mate had this problem, and i think its because you may be running the power cable next to the phono leads, at least i think this was the cause if i remember.

Cheers
