You can use a pair of clip leads to connect the center pins of each RCA jack to ground in the amp.

You said you had another Eros floating around, does it exhibit these symptoms?

The other Eros is not just floating around. It's in my main system attached to 2 turntables with a switch that I made with your and Doc's and Paul Joppa's help back in August of last year. The reason I made the switch was that I really love the Eros and didn't want to replace it when I added the second turntable.

As per your suggestion, Eros No. 1 is now in the system that I wanted the new Eros 2 for. Not an iota of hiss, crackling, popping. Just beautiful music.  Ergo, the noise is not environmental.

Stumped again. Very baffling.

Well, you are welcome to send it back and I can look it over again.  It's possible that there's a solder joint that just isn't 100% perfect and the shipping process is enough to disturb it.

Think I'll set up shop again and try to reflow as many joints as I can reach easily on the left side. Then we can re-evaluate.

Thanks as always,
