    Yeah I would give it a try to confirm or eliminate a GL as the problem.Ground loops are system dependant so will not always be a problem.You mentioned in a previous post someone else was experiencing a hum issue also,did they find a solution?

    I did take a peak inside and didn't notice anything unusual. Looked all stock under the hood.

    Is their a reason why the Dared is causing the problem and not other pieces of gear? I mean, my TV in my leaving room seems to have a ground loop problem but my audio never did until moving the Dared into place.

    My APC H15 has a ground on it, could I use it to create a central ground for everything plugged into it? I don't know if that even made sense.

    Thanks for all the help and suggestions thus far.

    Take it to a buddies house if you can and see if it does the same thing. If it is a ground loop, they can be a PITA to isolate and eliminate.

    See post #22.
    If you have a two pronged extension cord laying around you can use it for a quick test.

    I have found fm splitters have a larger chance of ground interference that others. I disconnect the cable isolator for the fm radio and the signal goes dead on noise. direct to tv or radio has o effect but the split seems to create a problem.
