    STEP-UP - PAS

    Post by Pillo69 on Mon Dec 22, 2014 8:22 pm

    I tried to place a Beyer Dynamic transformers PAS, to use capsules MC on my turntable.
    The result is bad, introduces much noise. This problem is PAS?.

    Du you mean hum ? In that case hum might be coming from the transformers themself, they will
    pick up any magnetic fields that is present in the house.

    Try to move them around, or put them inside an iron box ( old 2 inch water pipe tubing with endcaps
    of iron is a good material to shield MC transformers.)

    These are isolated by a metal box bought for it.
    I still introduces a nasty buzz.

    If they still hums with their inputs shorted there is a problem with them.
    If the hum stops when inputs shorted you might have a ground-loop problem between
    PAS and recordplayer

    Among the turntable and preamplifier there is good grounding.
    I'll check other options and comment.
